Painting

Painting is an alchemic process. The canvas is an ever-changing field of possibilities. Each painting is an exploration, a journey of progressive decisions, structural organization, sequences of movement, rhythms reminiscent of internal circulation. A union of revelation and mysterious realms.”

From the mixing of paint to the final glazing, my process is a contemplative experience. Layering different painting media, building up texture, scraping back, glazing, burning in wax, I allow the organic process to take over, balancing analytical decisions with intuitive practice.”
