  • Ah! Art is freedom, Art is expression and creativity. Really! , I often ponder the world of art and I come to the conclusion that working at art is a process of self-discovery. An artist has to find his own path through all the artistic, political and social influences and movements bombard us on a daily basis. Painting is building, forging matter and thought, moving them into a two dimensional world where I have to create my interpretation of my perception of reality. When the spectator views my work and accepts it as being a possibility and a view of a reality that can work then the work becomes truly real. All my works are built, they are in a way works created to some degree in the spirit of `constructivism’, as in the post- world war 1 Russian art movement and yet anchored in an architecture of the 21st century. They are works that ask you to take your time
