Art has been a constant companion throughout my life. Everything I perceive can become a source of inspiration, with themes often rooted in emotional, aesthetics, sociological, or political contexts. My creative process involves translating what deeply resonates with me onto the canvas. I employ traditional layered painting techniques and experiment with colors and textures to explore and showcase the phenomenon of color in all its facets.
Abstraction allows me to make colors, lines, shapes, and surface structures visible. The tension in my work arises from the interplay of light and dark, as well as the representation of various movement sequences through layered paint applied in a glazed or impasto manner. My titles offer snapshots, guiding viewers to interpret the
visual messages in their own way, completing the art cycle.
In addition to abstract works, I create pieces that can be seen as figurative abstraction or surreal impressions. Bringing new, unseen visual worlds to life is what I strive for in my art. For me, this is the essence of artistic creation.
