“Abstraction in the art is an ongoing journey for me. I’ve always made abstract works.

I couldn’t imagine doing otherwise.

Right from the start I was interested in abstract painting. I’ve never felt the need to tell a story with my work.

I am concerned with the material and the painting process itself.

Searching, experimentations and exploring the possibilities and the boundaries within my paintings in terms of different materials, composition, colors, plane and space, without a reference to reality.

Materials and the image, everything that turns a canvas into a painting, can evolve from an unknown territory to the more well known domain and back.

The pleasure in experimenting and finding new solutions inspires me every day.

It reflects the daily job as a painter; watching, searching, performing, interaction, correcting, weighting, recording, making decisions…”
