My vision

For years I’ve been painting and drawing, mainly in a figurative style. Gradually the style became more abstract, formally as well as subjectively. My paintings are a consequence of, and indissolubly linked to my spiritual journey towards the Light. Following this commitment my intuition leads the actions and gestures when starting a painting. To positively and lovingly design, congealing energy into matter, without the need for naming or describing. It is what it is. Then, the addition of “values”: rock crystal, shaped by nature or cut and polished, copper and gold leaf, fragments of mirror and glass. The playful mirroring and reflecting of light, and sharing this with others, has become the nucleus around which my activities revolve. If it makes you smile, it’s received with an eye-wink.
