Artist's Statement ::
The form and implication, of the work has been dissected, examined and simplified by me.
I depict nature.
I depict objects and people.
Everything visible is the object of my interest.
I get pleasure out of sculpting paint on canvas as well as out of unexpected combinations of color, lines and texture
