In the past, paintings were created and developed in stages. Each day brought new things. A painting was a sum of additions. In my case, a painting is a sum of destruction. I make a painting, then I destroy it.

Despite this, nothing is lost in the end. The red I erase from one place appears in another. – Pablo Picasso
