ABOUT MY WORKS
My work embraces a classical approach regarding choice of materials; I paint with oil on canvas. The subject matter is the human figure. Large-scale figures achieved through the use of altimetry. Color is the third visual component essential to the formation of my work.
My application of paint is fluid and organic, no abrupt angles or spatia interruptions are presented in the field, all space is considered with equal attention, the separations of positive and negative is achieved through color variation while the surface remains intact.
Paint follows shape as intent follows mood, thus merging the physical with the conceptual aspects of my process.
ABOUT MY ART
Life’s most precious asset is time. Time is how mankind organizes and categorizes thoughts and memories. Memories are the essential components and inspirations of my work. I relate people in my life to a specific moment in time and immortalize the moment on canvas through my painting. Time stops within the borders of my surface, allowing me to live eternally in the moment.
I create internal contradictions in my work, as my interest ranges from organic nature of the canvas and the figure I depict, to the artificial nature of oil paint, glossy and synthetic. It is a basic confrontation of passion and technology sharing the same plane.
The schematic aesthetics of my architectural background and the organic passionate curves of the figure intertwine into a topographically constructed fluid figure, frozen in my memory, and linking my past to my present.
