I am interested in the manifestation of the unconscious which I try to unveil through the art making process. The use of imagery and the act of painting itself function as meditation tapping into mystical realms of my self. I embark into each painting aiming to communicate my spiritual and psychological journeys.
An object becomes symbolic of a dream, a memory, a fiber of my imagination. My attention to the painting is that of a focused researcher utilizing my inner dialogue as the main library from where to bring forward the image(s). Over the years my attention and focused becomes refined impacting my painting technique.
At the end, the viewer is challenged to develop a contemplative dialogue with the painting and be absorbed by its colors, images, and light. In that viewing the painting may evoke a feeling, an emotion, and/or a memory- a connection has taken place beyond the painting itself.
