The course I have taken through my work aims to reveal sensible variables of the human spirit during a journey inbetween the PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE – along a destiny.
We pendulate somewhere above, harassed by extremes, between yesterday and tomorrow, seldom in an equilibrum of living the present. We are concerned about the past and chimerically building the future, but where is the PRESENT? … the only certainty we actually have and it seems we miss it. As the reality is an abstract concept, a creation of a spirit, personally strained through idealistic and fictitious analysis or even fabricated by the supernatural, we can be more conscious building up new levels of living, of enjoying life…even mystical!
My paintings are realised in an old master manner, and are inhabitated with an iconography full of symbols which aim to provoke the viewer to transcendental experiences, to reveries. A mystical or surrealist atmosphere embodies the spiritual life of the forms I paint. Not only the the human figure preveils, but animals, plants, insects, birds, landscapes, etc., all of them are free to play at ease as some „Creators” of life.
The figuration I use refuses description and explores the boundaries between realism and abstraction, between sense and substance; it is based on the material consistency, concreteness and sometimes on tactile sensation, from rough to graceful, from simple to complicated, even the extremely meticulous.
