My work is the result of a carefully thought-out process that leaves nothing to chance. Each painting is developed from numerous sketches, which allows a precise and rational appreciation of the effect of every line, shape and color. Everything is predetermined, yet it is only when a concept makes the leap from the sketch to the finished painting that its potential is realized, and I can see the full impact of my idea.
The exact geometric compositions contain my own personal perceptions, experiences, as well as views of the world and nature. This intimate approach inevitably softens up the mathematical exactness of the developed form.
I place great importance on color studies, and I strive to harness the physicality of color, its vibrations and the effects colors have on one another. I make use of all available artistic elements in order to produce paintings with an added value. The combination of the lines, grid network and variations of flat color constantly move the eye through different levels, different directions and different depths within the painting. This means that each individual work of art not only represents a calculated geometric abstraction, but also serves as a vehicle to engage observers, allowing different associations and emotional states. Put simply, to be drawn into the work and react to it. Through this interaction, observers becomes trapped in two different systems of perception—mine and their own.
The most important purpose of my paintings is to make observers stop and immerse themselves in the art, as they are compelled to think and contemplate its effect.
My art encourages logical thinking as well as stimulating a personal reaction when viewers discover their own explanations of the work.
