Several fields are involved in my art. These are subjects I've spent years learning and that inspire what I create: Deep Space Astronomy, Kabala studies, Ancient Egyptian Symbolism, Numerology and the meaning of colors as expression of different levels of energy. While painting the celestial sky I deal with questions about the origins of life, conception, pregnancy and birth that evoked the very first moment it all began. My art gives me a space to experiment with and connect all these worlds; the atomic and molecular space-time continuum, the star-galaxy, the galaxy cluster space-time realm. I use real tar, acrylic and wax and other organic matter that makes up the physical universe. In every one of my paintings there is a precise approach to using colors and forms. In my attempts to gather the energy of the universe with my artistic production I wrote four basic rules that are applicable to any human being and object in space.

MOVEMENT There is no celestial element that stands still. Movement in the universe is spiral shaped. Movement is a basic feature of every human being, thus the power of the mind and the legs.

GATHERING There is no celestial element that stands alone. Planets are bound to suns, suns to galaxies, galaxies to clusters. So children are bound to their mother, families, cities and countries.

CYCLES All celestial movements manifest in cycles, as the human cycle of conception, birth, growth, childhood, adulthood, old age and disappearance of the physical body, so suns are created by condensed gas, attracting matter and spiral movement by gravity force, the end of a star life is known as Super Nova which dismisses its remaining matter to the universe from which new stars are born.

EVOLUTION There is a constant evolution through the ray of creation. In this respect we need to consider proportions. If the human evolution takes about a hundred years, a star's evolution is about ten billion years.
