“What is essential is most often invisible to the eye”.
My artwork is generally initiated by everyday scenes, objects or happenings, which I find inspirational simply by their being and how they resonate within me.
Although my work is most often referential, I seldom attempt to recreate specific scenes or objects as much as I attempt to express the feelings they instill within me. What I retain is more often better represented through abstraction and minimalisation, by condensation and exaggeration of shape, and often use different tones and textures than what would necessarily be experienced by the naked eye.
I rely heavily on color, shape and texture to create the impression of image and atmospheric presence that, I feel…is the most important aspect of creating art. That presence is what I strive to transfer onto canvas, offering it to resonate with others.
