The paintings includes clues and fragments from the past, mixed with symbols and figures from the hieroglyphics and cave paintings. I use fragments of the past and the present. Some symbols are old and well known; others are made up and resemble ancient symbols and writing. I create images in which the meanings of the adjacent symbols change. My paintings are a combination of mixed media works that involves acrylic, tempera, gauche and collage elements. Texture, surface treatments and color are very important aspects of my work in order for each painting to have a very profound and compelling presence.
The goal is to create a compelling work of abstract art that engages the viewer, is endlessly absorbing and promotes a meaningful dialogue. Where the images can be seen as decorative, but also give an interest to move closer to see more details.
