The subject of my paintings concerns the relationship between the space and the emotion I find myself in at the time. After that moment has occurred, all problems are pictorial. My paintings take shape through a gradual process of layering, and as the internal logic of each composition unfolds, forms are defined, buried and rediscovered until the painting becomes “congruent with itself.”
As my paintings are about space, it made me realize how much geometry there is around us, and it has become the most important aspect in my work.
Each painting is a consolidation of many paintings underneath, each functioning as an autonomous object and revealing the visible traces of its construction.
With my paintings I do not want to instruct viewers what to think, but allow them to embark on their own personal journeys through new experiences.
