I have never followed any agenda or creed, and I don’t like predictability and obviousness. When it comes to visual art, I find myself more inspired by individual artworks and the world around me, rather than specific artists or artistic movements.
I am influenced by many things. Folk art is a major inspiration. Also, music and astronomy…
I am interested in producing pieces that extend beyond an institutionalized vacuum, so that it exists as an element particular to their time.
My work is abstract. I focus on making work that focuses on painting as object and its physical properties. Through the various layering, sanding, moving, erasing etc. I hope to create work that has a certain soul and essence about it.
My research focuses on the topic of space. I like to challenge the relationship between body, space and dimension, raising questions about the physical and individual perception of these three elements.
My recent paintings draw from the formal language of logotypes, typography, signage, iconography and political & religious symbols, together with their shared purpose of explicit communication.
In it’s very DNA painting, the applying of liquid colour to a surface by various procedures, offers itself as the ideal means to create a purposeful exchange, where chance can engage with necessity and randomness with determinism.
My research focuses on building a structured image based on minimal elements of painting language and on sign, surface, full and voids relationships.
I use repeating, modular, geometric patterns to illustrate personal observations, philosophical theories, and psychological phenomenon.
I’ve been focused on monochrome, or single-color painting, since 1990. My work has consistently been about reducing forms to basic elements: structure, support, surface, materials.
