/In fact, I should say, that all I have to say – is in my graphics and drawings. It sounds good. The truth should sound good. After all, everything, that we do, each of our words and gestures of a hand – is but our self-portrait./ /Scraping off the linocuts and drawing are intimate issues. I am alone with myself. I can do anything. I, the creator. But – if we treat this issue seriously – it always turns out to be a self-portrait. Today all of my rags fell away, I stand naked, and as in the case of an author, there is something to look at or there is not. To make it clear, for the sake of clarity – and clarity should there be in any matter – it needs to be known, that not everything depends on me, no, it does not, after all, in a partnership creator-viewer, it is the latter one, who is an equally significant, or perhaps an even more significant artist!/

/A book is written by the sensitive mind of a reader…/
