ARTIST STATEMENT

A work of art becomes through seeing. It’s a growth of reality, not a copy of something already existing. It’s an event of truth, discovering the essence of being.
My creativity is the effect of thinking, emerging from archetypes and symbols. To a large extent I allow myself to be lead by my intuition, trying to extract images from the subconscious that are one of the main sources of my inspiration.
