​I don’t paint the olive tree, I paint about the olive tree. 

When someone tells you a story about their grandpa, you don’t see their grandpa, you haven’t met him, but you feel like you know him, or you know why you want to meet him. My paintings don’t show you a tree. They describe how the tree is affected by the wind, and how its roots shift the soil… they try to show you why you want to meet the tree.
