Life and the rich, strong experiences I have had, are the driving forces behind my work. As an artist, I view life experiences from within: geometric forms and archetypal symbols illuminate my search. Forms flow spontaneously and the constant evolving processes give way to imagined spaces, caves and labyrinths. Mystery and color emerge from a state of mental relaxation. I compare them to maps leading to passages of Inner time and to unknown places, and leaving deep imprints within. Archetypal symbolism is a magical component of my work that continuously opens unlimited possibilities of expression. I use knives palettes, fingers, and brushes, adding and scraping textures, creating a strong impact on my canvases. While releasing my emotions, I would ask the viewers to relate personally to each painting, and find their own interpretations, impressions and conclusions.
