When I paint, I enter a quest where time looses its chronology, space warps into a distorted perspectives, images collapse and deteriorate revealing layers of images underneath to deepen the meaning - I collapse everything into new structures and unexpected alliances; yet, all this absurdity gives a stronger and clearer message through empirical experience.
Bringing parts of the painting into the 3-D, adding range of textures and materials, physically abusing the surface makes my paintings to be appreciated face to face as they loose their vitality and aesthetic value being photographed, printed or viewed over Internet. As if you look at the photograph of the loved ones, but it is far from holding them close.
