available for interviews and artist statements

Our seed is the core

(The core is our essence)

Our seed is growing roots

But we forget

We deny  

We strive for deconstruction

from which is necessarily born: reformation

reforming and reshaping a vision: visionary -

But don't feign, don't fling out hyper-representative caricatures.

Feed the seed with soil, allow it to root,
to nourish and to flourish

And once the seed flourishes
in the rich soil

don't ignore it

Allow the abstract essence
and make it your own magic,

your tool, your instrument

My thoughts,
rooted in nature,
are the entity of my work.


Roots, Wilderness, (Chaos) - Existence

Plants grow and die

I’m the seed,

The creation is the soil,

The process is the root,

The painting is the plant,

The painting is the seed,

The process is the soil,

The creation is the plant,

I’m the root

As in our civilization we built walls (Order)

We are confronted with frontiers (Society)

These walls know not of the pure root of existence

I, as a painter, depict both the pains and joys

of seeking out and growing closer to our roots.
