Through painting I process feelings and ideas while filtering out repetitive or frustrating thoughts. The process is meditative and improvised and sometimes I try to make a very particular thing. Organic and unexpected forms are fundamental in all of my pieces.
My work has been dephased in the sense that I work new ideas with compositions or drawings done years before. And color combinations to me sometimes are like food cravings that stay in the head. I think of a certain combination that I make up or see somewhere until I use it or forget it.
Lately I have been interested in juxtaposing straight lines and bright colors with organic shapes and earthy colors to give the painting a multidimensional sense. I am also incorporating elements of landscapes in a decomposed way against solid backgrounds to give the painting a sense of space or place.
