An artist's statement

T

he urban landscape has always been a source of fascination in my work because it pulsates with a pure energy that provides me, the artist with an array of visual and emotional stimuli.€

Landscapes are constantly changing, being constructed and deconstructed at a rapid pace much like the process in my paintings.I am particularly fascinated with the tactile nature of cities along with their emotional energy and their dominant structures. I translate

these three aspects in my work through abstracted mixed media paintings on canvas. I use mostly a neutral and limited palette along with varied textures, geometric shapes and organic forms, to create individual worlds of rhythmic movement.
