In creating surfaces I blend various materials such as acrylic paints, drawing materials, collage,
sometimes even plaster... I am inspired by surfaces that show the passage of time. I want to transmit
to the viewer its evolution, its passage and the
treasures it leaves behind.
The process of painting is to me as important as the completion of a piece. I feel that art in all its
forms reflects man's searches, concerns, drive,
strivings and feelings. The artist, whether consciously or unconsciously, transmits or reflects this "pulse."
One of the major concerns of every individual is
facing the unknown and the inexplicable. My art
deals with this encounter with the unknown, which
at times can be exhilarating and exciting, but at
other times full of dread and anxiety. Frequently, in my paintings the use of black or dark colors expres-ses the attempt to face the inexplicable. These darkcolors are broken by, or alternate with light and
brighter colors and reflect man's existential attempt
to impose his order and meaning, even if subjective.
Colors can also be seen to represent man's insightsand "peak experiences."By using this alternation of dark and light, of black and color I try to face
the puzzle of life.
I try to transmit the feeling that one sometimes has of almost grasping the illusive, that feeling of
"déjà vu", and the intense joy, even euphoria, of
