The artwork is the apotheosis of the interrelation between macrocosm and microcosm, objective and subjective. Technical structures and feelings alternate in an unceasing dialectical relationship. Vision, perception, and memory are closely linked. Every piece is a microcosm of my own cosmogony within an all-embracing macrocosm, individual yet universal.
My artistic research originates from the study of the sign, with a dual and simultaneous development – graphic and material. The sign is the graphic metamorphosis of noumena into phenomena. It is the primogenium element of cosmogenic visions, a condensation of energy and form in gestation. It contains the dynamism of the gesture that determines it… The succession of small marks features the unfolding of form creating atmospheric textures and alternating light and shadows, solids and voids.
