Linking to one’s imagination.
As an artist, I am guided by the perception of a reality that is beyond any semantic constructions. This “reality” eludes attempts at explanation and cannot be linearly described. What the viewer may see on the surface of a canvas could range in perception from a musical equation to a part of the cosmos located somewhere very far away from us to a stream of elementary molecular particles passing through us to name but a few. At the same time, the depicted can be understood as a symbolic reflection of our microcosm, the deep layers of consciousness and the subconscious, archetypical of our being. Today, further exacerbated by the “covidual” era, with its anxieties, affects, epiphanies and unknowns that we attempt to grasp. In any case, on the other side of semantics, the line between the external and the internal turns out to be tenuous and illusory. This creates tension and releases us from our conventional bonds.
In creating my works I use an alchemical method that makes reality in part my co-author. I set the initial theme, dimension, and design of the work, adding reality specifies and individual detail flourishes. As a result of this interaction, where chance and interpretation plays a role in the formation of the image, painting becomes a creative dialogue leading to the creation of new worlds - a joint work of our experiences and environment.
My approach is greatly influenced by entering an expansive meditative state using simple Eastern breathing practices of Pranayama. I find discovering and concentrating on the images and feelings blossoming in my mind—fuels the dialogue of my own consciousness. I experience great pleasure both from the work and from the feeling of being one with the dynamic world around me—the people, the trees, the birds, the clouds, my paints and the surface of the canvas
