Philosophy (particularly Plato) lies at the core of my art, underpinning my need for self-expression in order to connect with something greater: freedom, beauty, nature, and the universe.
When I paint a landscape, I search for the abstract images that exist in reality: the shapes of a tree, a building, a shadow, etc.
My goal is to expose and amplify these abstractions — what I call abstractivation. I am searching for the elusive line between figural and abstract work in the hope of reaching new spiritual dimensions.
Abstractivation is the pillar of my art, it is the way that I work and the way that I see.
Working regularly on figurative and abstract paintings helps me to feed this vision.
