Artist Statement: For me painting is a visual language that ignites my curiosity and imagination. I paint for the sheer joy of it!
My approach is both intuitive and experimental. Acrylic paint is the medium of choice as it allows me the freedom to watch as the story unfolds. Colour is the impetus combined with some unorthodox and playful tools, like an assortment of brushes, scrappers, credit cards ,rakes and rollers. While nature and the beauty of the world that surrounds, shows me the possibility of pressing the envelope of artistic creation.
I try to keep abreast of current art and terminology with art magazines, books
and seminars but most of all travelling the world and trying to tour all the
magnificent Art Museums throughout.
It is a dance between canvas and paint. These artworks are inspired by my love of vivid colours. Rainbow colours to symbolize both diversity and inclusion, they are about expression and movement inviting the viewer to take this mystical journey.
Using these large canvases to bring extraordinary life to the ordinary thoughts and feelings of the heart.
Layers of bold vivid colour full of confidence and energy, twin with intuitive marks
to enchant the mind to experience a delightful journey of the imagination. There is a vocabulary of geometric shapes throughout ,building repeated layers of material to express my belief in the underlying unity of everything in the universe,
constantly searching for more effective methods of revealing the mystery within.
With these abstract compositions, I hope the viewer will pay more attention to this idea. That we should work a little harder to remember, to honour, to appreciate but most of all to celebrate this life!
Because life is a canvas and everyday we need a little magic! Who can say this better than Italian Physicist: Carlo Rovelli
(Here on the edge of what we know in contrast with the ocean of the unknown,
shines the mystery and the beauty of the world, and it is BREATHTAKING!)
