“My work is the use of energy aimed to a specific purpose: aesthetic and sublime bliss through art. I’m mostly entertained by art history, the plenty of details, the incomparable beauty and otherwise the complexity of it all, is inspiration and precious material for my thought.”
“In my paintings, the essential elements of the compositions, a hodgepodge of ornaments, merge in the narration; the ambiguity and the paradox becomes the "concept". It alludes to the static and dynamic structures that visually render the process. The whole of the elements seem to emerge from unconventional ideas as much as from art history. The paintings are "up-coming" fields where colour creates an idealized space.
Art is advanced communication, it is related to physical places, people and spaces; the introspective dimension and sense of belonging related to others is the possibility for artistic events to compose in a social and creative experience.”
