My artistic practice started as a part-time, self-taught balancing act during my life in Canada. The first experiments with color and movement were influenced by the North American Abstract Expressionists (Jackson Pollok, Jean-Paul Riopelle) and came from a quest for color and free expression and a thirst for unseen forms and patterns. By 2014, art took a primary place in my life when I moved to Berlin and added new dimensions to my experimentations: post-Painterly Abstraction, Conceptual Art, Op Art, Minimalism and a continued interest for Asian Art (Gerhard Richter, Agnes Martin, Mark Rothko, Sol le Witt, Yayoi Kusama, Hiroshi Sugimoto and many others). Originally a purely acrylic painter, I have discovered other forms of expression in installations, objects, digital drawing and, in the last years, calligraphic ink drawing. Results may have varied over time, but my process is the same: firstly, I choose the color according to my feelings and, then, a starting point. The final and most important act is to let everything flow freely allowing for accidents, but most importantly, for the surprise, the novelty and discovery of the “unseen” within the self. The movements are simple, looking for primitive impulses so as to dissolve the complexity, restrictiveness and ambiguity of language and figurative representation, a transcendental quest away from intellectualism. The surfaces generated are representations of a subconscious full of imagery, exposed to a multitude of patterns in my every day environment, but mostly in nature where they thrive freely. These patterns of energy in movement become live membranes remodeled by my emotions and inner thoughts.
