    I try to make beautiful objects that are strongly material and that at the sametime have an otherworldly appearance, like mental visions... We tend to focuson half, or less than half, of reality. We mostly notice and tend to our day-today‘regular reality’. But there’s a whole other side to the picture. It’s infinity,the space our minds touch, where our souls live... I try to make work that hasintense three-dimensional existence in our ‘regular reality’, yet that alsoseems to exist or to have come from that other, infinite space.John McCracken taken fromAlmine Rech Editions, ed., Recontres 4 JohnMcCracken, Paris, 2000, n.p. and p. 3.
