"  Curator’s Comments: Rational Space #2 piqued my interest recently when it came up on the site.  The red-orange center of this abstraction appears to glow from a light source from within, as surrounded by cooler, deeper hues. …"

Artist Statement:      


Making Art or why, is one of the most difficult things to explain or talk about in my opinion because it is certainly for me a solitary impulse/drive that is especially at the beginning not very clear, it is just there!

Since a very early age I was just drawn to Images, pictures, lines and color, and instinctively felt very comfortable looking at paintings.

I’m constantly in the process to find a visual Language that is always changing from one work to the other and every piece is leading me to another place where I’m wondering again what is behind the next painting or sculpture I’m making and it feels like a never ending winding road.

The only thing I can say for certain is that I will never stop walking this road and hope it keeps going on forever!

There is however a very big difference of the state of mind that I’m working in between my Glass pieces and painting for example, the emotional condition is very different because the pieces I make with glass and other materials need to be besides the Initial design conception very carefully planned and calculated to be accomplished, while during the painting process and it doesn’t matter in what medium, the emotional feedback is immediate or instantly.

I think it also shows in my work there are elements of free expression and then again of controlled form and order, that is certainly a manifestation of my Personality which is reflected thru my work.
