As a painter I explore the world and my experience of it. I create images through constant observation of what is closest to me - home, family, friends - vis-à-vis the large cultural context in which I live. Everything around me - streets, landscapes, people - penetrates my work in movement and rhythm. My art has a primordial, naïve and unleashed force about it, as I seek to capture the pulse of life both consciously and unconsciously. My work maintains a dialogue with Neo-Expressionism and minimalism as well as with primitive archaic cultures. I believe that essentially a painter works from a feeling of blindness and all the while strives very hard to observe and to grasp what is inside of him. He must feel and understand, accept and express.
