FLAVIA SOUZA This is of course still not a work of her. I work for a long time and then something magical happens. If I try to repeat it it doesn't work so I have to go very tenuously and carefully finding my way again. It is a persistence and a sensitivity and also a kind of respect that makes it happen. Also I get images in my head that I then put down as closely as I can to the original in my head. This is much easier than to find my way as I am going. I still haven't found a formula - I fear there isn't one - just trying your ass off to match your inspiration or a feeling that the thing is right. Very hard work for me, not an easy thing but boy is it unbelievable when it happens.
