"It's the voodle that made me discover life...with landscapes, people, houses, urban spaces, interiors, art-works... the whole generic quotidian and the particular festive within. I discovered it as if I were in Plato's cave and then there was a little window in it and a film being projected. So one day I said: 'Look, there is life; so I'm going to do voodles in order to discover life'."
