Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic, Phototransfer, Pastel, Pencil on Wood.

In this painting i tried to reach a dreamlike state, mixing the presence of a women shaking her head with the desert, the music, the modernist architecture, all under the infinity sign of zen

My works are layered, as i drip paint, scrawl words on the wood, and mixe mediums including oil and pastels, crayon, pencil, marker, and digital photographs which i transfer to the wood with an analogue technique. I have a very clear imagination of the approximate. Working with opposites, I mix abstraction with the tangibility of the visible world.

My main motive is the search for a new beauty in the contradiction of our reality. As it is with a good poem, the poetical sound, the lyrical vibe, needs to ignite the reader. The semantic level can gradually get discovered. Ambiguities are to be tolerated and withstood – it should not be too comfortable. If I immediately know what’s going on, it is getting boring. A painting should remain a mystery.

Every one of my wood paintings is expensively wooden framed, with a floating shadow fugue and a professional suspension.
