"My idea is that narratives sacrifice intuition, gut feelings and the profound experience of mystery that a painting has the potential to provide. My forms and marks, with their apparent weight, particular vitality, and inertia live in a luminous and transparent environment. Their primary focus is on rhythm and cadence that I try to convey through color, line, and forms. As such, they are purely expressive or lyrical, not narrative. My paintings are there to let the mind of viewers run free and float through colors and patterns, moods and emotions.
In addition, the most recent paintings are moving toward an openness, letting color and space within the piece play a more prominent role in achieving a balanced yet lively environment, coexisting with forms, line and marks. I am interested in relationships forms, marks,color and depth have and how they interact to form the painting . "
