Artist Statement

I’m an abstract expressionist artist working mainly in painting, using color as an inspiration and communicator. I create my art to seek balance in my everyday life and an order within my innermost state of mind in the search for truth in myself and to transform my primitive expression into a universal image, refined through many layers of the ego. That order creates itself before my eyes at the tip of my brush, without a plan or previous knowledge. I let my hand explore at random while staining the canvas without a specific idea, other than to make my vision a reality. My technique is mixed, using acrylics, oils and resins on canvas and paper. As part of the process, I use water under pressure to remove some of the freshly applied acrylic pigment, to reveal submerged layers.

I follow my vision with the action of the brushstrokes, painting abstract mindscapes where colors and shapes coexist in tense harmony, much like life itself. I make sketches in my mind and allow my vision to develop as I paint, like in a musical composition.

In my work I try to develop forms that do not follow any logical criteria, but are based only on my perception of inner life, reality and subjective associations which represent my individual concept of beauty. Art is truth expressed by the action of a brushstroke to create beauty originating from existence.
