On My Geometric Art
Color is a very important part of my art. I mix paint intuitively and create personal and idiosyncratic colors. Simple geometric shapes in uniform colors are for me the way to express myself clearly and convincingly.
My work is about human experiences. Emotions, feelings, and thoughts are represented by a dynamic interplay of color and abstract forms. I often express energy and motion in my paintings and sculpture. One of my artistic objectives is to create ever more intense artworks that convey emotional power and energy.
My painting process is not spontaneous. First I come up with an idea of an image from intuition. Then I go through a process of developing the idea using digital blueprints. These digital images evolve over a period of time until they are “ripe” and that's when I start putting them on canvas. The entire process from conception to execution may take a few months.
My sculpture is an extension of my painting. Moving from painting to sculpture, the intuitive ideas not only get an additional dimension but also are somehow less abstract and more apparent than my paintings. My sculptural works also have architectonic quality. Unlike the process I use in painting I do not use blueprints to make sculpture. The idea-to-artwork path is more direct and spontaneous.
