Statement

 

STATEMENT

My artwork is expressive and colorful, my goal is to give the viewer an emotional experience when viewing each painting.

My foundation in academic realism influences the recurrent themes in my work which may be landscapes, portraits, human figurative paintings or still life compositional arrangments employing realism as an unifying ideal.

Furthermore, I have worked in abstraction- working as a minimalist and then using symbolic derivatives as an abstract expressionist to explore broader narratives.

My work at times happens to show an impressionistic tendency.

The diverse subject matter addressed in my work is connected with a common regard for beauty, atmospheric tone and the timelesness of artistic expression.
