Comments of the artist :
I believe, that every artwork, be it a painting, or a sculpture, is a physical reconstruction of my idea or thought. To me an artwork is a consequential outcome of the analysis of the respective subject.
Working in, acrylic or oil on canvas (sometimes oil with acrylic) helps to channelise and transform my spontaneous idea with its original form, to an artwork. I understand that my works are an analytical abstract interpretation, portraying psychology and temperament.
“the mind is like the universe, having no limits, so is the canvas.”
The thought process is the cause of evolution to my working methodology. I understand that every emotion is free from any geometrical barrier. Thus, the execution, of the original form of the subject has always been my interest and intention.
My interpretations hold a palette of not more than three to four shades in order to be, in context with the subject and its strong symbolism. In my working style, one can observe the correlation of dots and lines, being the major elements on my canvas. I believe, that improvisation, leads us to minimalism, where ‘less becomes more.’ thus one can find a ‘minimalist’ approach in expression of the subject in my works.
My works are purely a self-expression of bohemian ideas, with their austere execution and being an honest interpretation of my world.
"painting gives me the most satisfying pleasure. When all the forces come together: the brush strokes, the right colors, the mood i created through starting the painting, my style which comes through, and i try not to loose that stream of consciousness when i paint. It is trance-like and it is the only way i know how to meditate. My art is an acknowledgement of life, a confession of my feelings, and a celebration of the painting process.
