STATEMENT

What I do is a physical and spiritual activity. I am irresistibly drawn to this activity, and I have dedicated my whole life with tenacity to this endeavor.  It is an act of drawing on a part of my subconscious.  This mysterious part of my brain has been programmed before birth and stores accumulated insight, knowledge, and wisdom through years of experience and practice. I am an artist.

 

At first glance, my work may appear conventional.  It is a reaction to ‘art’ that appears to be novel, shallow or clever.  With honestly, I try to produce works of art, that are in fact hiding deeply in the hidden forces that plugs us to an inner connection to nature. Doing what I do has nothing to do with what is in style or other people’s values.  I am on my own personal path.

 

Throughout history, artists have always responded to their surroundings. My landscape paintings are rooted in abstract forms, secrets, and symbols. Symbols mean what we want them to mean. The powers of symbolic forms have transformed cultures and our world countless of times and have helped humans’ rationalize our place in the universe.

 

The landscape signals an exquisite moment of knowing, the flashes, insights and reflections that changes are coming.  The strength to change becomes the new growth. When something new is created or discovered something old is destroyed.  New growth is often faced alone.  It takes courage to change, and, often, it is painful.
