Statement 19


I paint moments and feelings - a painting is never planned, yet rather experienced and expressed in a moment of making. My work is about the abstract and figurative ongoing and never stopping mutation and thus a reflection of myself as I experience it. In my work, there is silence, thoughts, humour and spontaneity. Often when I paint, the colour elements merge into shapes providing multiple narratives centred around the relationship they establish without my forceful control. Abstract nature of colour, which is so fascinating to me, helps to establish endless metamorphosis, I always feel that a painting can never be truly completed. My inspiration is stimulated by the ongoing discovery of life's relationships, spiritual teachings, transformation, music and dance.

 

Statement 17

My subject matter is people and the mind itself - its dance in the realms of real and 'unreal'. Our need to dream unjustified as well as logically synthesise, to feel and to think, equally affecting one another.  Our relationship to space and our communicative forces deviating from language.

When I reach out and interact with my paintings by observing unintentional or randomly choosing during this process of painting, - I liberate myself from any controlled idea, this leads to various determents and points of meaning if necessary.

In this poetic dance with my creating and allowing accidents to happen, -  interaction is going both ways, it could be called as an engagement synergy within organic matter :)

If there is this tension between figurative and abstract, neither one can be excluded - a defined story line in non-defined space, movement, stillness - it all coexists, equally contributing and constantly mutating around the human soul.
