The canvas for me is like a quantum field of possibilities and diversity is the motivation for my work, which is grounded on the observation of the natural world and the human connection. Using color as the magnet that attracts the attention of the viewer, images sometimes follow chaotic patterns and reversed scales, which in turn can transform into geometric shapes or an intimate eye contact with a portrait.
Most of the times, there is no rhyme of reason why I choose a subject. It only needs to catch my attention and I go along with it, and even though the images are rather representational, my main interest is in portraying the essence behind that image. It is the portrayal of that essence that makes painting a creative adventure as well as a spiritual exploration.
