Making this image was tough, I couldn’t bring out what I saw in the image. But when I gave up, a new meaning within the image came to present itself as if to say that I should not despair. That’s the way it is with the women in my life… Maybe that’s why it was a necessary process for me when I wanted to make a series of female portraits. 

Various people are of the opinion that a portrait of a woman is always only sweet. There is a lot to be said for this, especially if you look at the history of sculpture. That is precisely why I radically deny that and approach women openly. And see that behind the feeling of failure lies a new meaning.
