“I have feelings, but I don’t know why I am doing it. I don’t know what’s going on, but I know I have to do it. I love it.
Everything comes during the work. I don’t know where it comes from and how I am doing it. It is a secret from myself. No thinking. No remembering. No planning. It comes spontaneously. It is like a song I am singing, but I don’t know the words. I never heard the song, but I am singing.
I don’t know what is going on inside of me, but I can’t live without painting. Something leaves me. I go to another world. It rules me. It comes like a necessary thing to make me happy when I am painting. Time stops for me. Time doesn’t exist for me.
Painting keeps me running, keeps me active. It keeps me alive.” Novik’s states on his webiste.
