I make marks and gestures on surfaces with a multitude of mediums. Each one, whether it be graphite, oil stick, or paint, calls me during the time of creation to be utilized. These compulsive choices allow me to generate highly personal moments, created through rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer closer and closer into the picture.
My paintings can reference recognizable form, but are not constrained to the possibility of being purely aesthetic. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Through the use of abstraction, I attempt to grasp a language that can not be expressed through words. At that moment, lots of ambiguities, which are inherent to the phenomenon, come to the surface.
My work focuses on the inability of communication. I am seeking to visualize reality, the attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content and the dysfunctions of language. The lack of clear references are key components in my work. By investigating language on a meta-level, I maneuver the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the confusion of the human condition in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.
Sometimes, my work radiates a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual allurement, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of the work’s manifold layers of meaning.
