My work is a deep dive into the human mind. I became very interested in what happens inside our minds ever since I had to deal with a case of mental disturbance in my family. Each artist has his own history, his own path. That’s what makes every artist special in his own way.
You can’t see oils and solvents in a finished painting, but they are there. The same happens with inspiration. In my paintings, I call forth one of my great inspirations: paper ephemera. The diffuse character of printed matter is powerful. After turning the corners of our thoughts, it slowly decomposes into the deep soil of our collective unconscious. This is the mud in which I dirty my hands. This rich mental energy is like an invisible raw element, part of the immaterial alchemy of my works.
