I want each artwork to have an immense energy, both vibrant and full of humanity.

In each series I create a space for experimentation that combines the rational and the intuitive, using structures that allows playfulness within the language of abstract painting.

Earlier my artistic practice came from elements of both, the appearance and the processes of games. This approach, beyond the visual, became a framework for experimenting. This series, that dealt with the relationships between order and chaos, psychic and material, mathematical and chance, showed me the relation between forms and their inherent energy.

In a later series called 'Now & Ever', the work searched the energy of forms that deepen to a more mystical universe.

The series after called 'Tabula Rasa' the energy took moments of SLOWNESS, silence and meditation through patient observation.
Space and time are joined visually with attentive marks and colour fluctuations.  I later also found a connection to the work with Agnes Martin which I found an amazing connection to her philosophy.

A series on japanese rice paper talk about fragility, of the paper itself and the equilibrium between human activity and life. Abstracted cosmovisions.

Painting is for me a visual language that reflects our human condition. Painting as a way to reflect the capacity of humans to be inspired, to abstract and to express life. In the paintings I try to reflect the mind and the sensuous, the aesthetic of beauty that is imbedded in life itself.
