"Color is like music that touches directly your soul."
Since my youth I have been in circles of artists and surrounded by photographers, sculptors and painters. That inspired me to see life with different eyes. From the beginning, art has guided me through the time and the world.
My first medium was photography as tangible proof of the beauty and the experience. At some point that was no longer enough for me. I wanted to show more, including what I saw and felt behind the facades. That was best shared in painting. I started painting in 2001.
Where photography creates moment, I extract through my painting, impressions of time and reality, the splendor of places in their subtle changeability.
For me, abstract painting is communication on another level, another dimension, where is color like music that touches directly your soul.
All that is is energy. I can transform the various forms that appear in reality into something special in my work.
Strong colors and moving elements invite you to dream and discover things that lie beyond rigid constructs.
With hands and brushes on the floor, I work the color onto the canvas. I pick up structures and coat them with color to create access to the own inner world.
Long in advance I have the picture in my head and during the painting process I harmonize and dynamize it.
I don't follow a strategy, I follow my intuition.
In my art I take the same freedom as nature, which allows something to grow and develop.
At the moment of tension and relaxation, when paint flows on canvas and something completely new is created, I feel abstract art like a cosmic orgasm.
With my pictures I create a bridge from the outside to the inside, which wants to bring the viewer into contact with himself, his courage and his joy.
