Yet the spaces I am painting are
imaginary, my intention is to evoke reality in it's wholeness.
I will try to share with you some thoughts on the source of my
inspiration. I will introduce you to some of my Muses, that help me
endure on the artistic path in this "profit driven" society.
My intention is to take my audience beyond peripheral perception that is
shaped and molded trough society, and culture. How to get to this place
where our true nature is perceivable for our eyes? Better yet, this
place is a state, a state in which we are able really to observe without
our mind interfering, a state of para logic, a state of non logic.
My aspiration is to awake our inner landscapes, primal images that every
human carries within, imprints that we share as species. Basically I am
alluding to our spiritual nature. The atmosphere I am trying to create
is "dreamlike" as our inner spaces are. This is one of my greatest
challenges, to create a background that resonates with archetypal human
nature, a surrounding where our imagination is enhanced and free of
An important part of reality has been left behind in the “progress” of
the civilized human. On our own surprise, what is left behind is our own
soul. It craves spiritual awakening, it craves spiritual growth.
We are all witnesses to rapid development of technology, yet the humans
are spiritual children. My belief is that soul exploration should have a
permanent place in person’s life. Consuming Art is one way to tap into
this world of energies, messages, metaphors... into our souls.
Just a possibility to create a bridge between worlds in every sense, is
such a strong motivator for an artist. Creating a passage between
physical and spiritual worlds is an act of magic, and great source of
inspiration. For me it is a voice of our ancestors, and a matter of
fulfilling a call.
I have chosen my language to be highly symbolic, awaking metaphors built
into our archetypal collective subconsciousness, so everybody gets to
digest their own "soul food".
Bon Appétit !
