I have always been connected to the invisible and visible aspects of human drama, the particular and the universal. My art is assembled from different elements. Even although my paintings and sculptures are my own work and are tied to me, they are not intended to be about me. The subject matter is greater than me as an individual.
My palette is not set in color - order, I find the colors as I go ... I believe also that colors are like music notes,and like words in poetry, including its pauses and dissonances. They create a dialogue, a sensory experience...and a spiritual connection...
I think that critical thinking goes hand with hand with art, and my paintings are born from a thought, where nothing is resolved. It is an endless path with no arriving point ,coming from an accumulation of a life of experiences, felt and heard.
I see the surfaces and empty molds as Absences and I go from there, woven into the uncounted, rather that the mimetic approach or incorporating optical illusion ...trying to transform Absences in Presences, with color, filling that void of annihilation.
At first glance the colors call one’s attention, but actually I am not concerned or interested in the relationship of colors, or the beauty of the color in itself , rather I use color to express Human emotions .
I start with simple lines and color allowing them to be, without resistance and judgment, until it starts to have life of its own and emerges. It is then that the composition takes Presence. I employ certain vagueness in my paintings in order to illustrate the transient, mercurial and unstable nature of reality.
There is always a constant connection and dialogue with my works. I can’t explain why I paint that way. What I can say is my paintings are created from a reflective point ( or in a contemplative frame) of a lifetime of observations, experiences and powerful recollections about Humanity and Nature.
I follow a state of mind- motion that wakes up what was in me in a dormant stage and evolves on the canvas spontaneously and creates a sense- Presence.
