ARTIST STATEMENT

The underlying tendency of my artistic works lies in questioning the biological essence of life and the physical makeup of matter: the overall concepts of transformation and metamorphosis. In constant search of textures, I take pictures and gather materials to return to the studio. All matter is sought as stimuli to glean visual cues and serve as inspiration. I envision the canvas as a broad surface rather than simply a surface hosting a predominating image. The surface becomes a pretext for my spontaneous and intuitive experiments with matter. It is from these beginnings, and the hues & colors from a preselected palette that I stage a visual and chromatic presentation. I freely and instinctively stroke the canvas, allowing shapes, lines and forms to outline random recognizable images. In my painting a shape is gradually fashioned one brush stroke spawned from the previous one. It is happenstance guiding my works to take their form.
