In my paintings I try to express the powerful and complex basic human emotions. These emotions, raw and pure as they are, become instigators and catalysts in our lives; expressing the purity of our souls. This large surface of either pure or intense color provokes the viewer; immediately altering the initial experience with the work, therefore allowing an intimate interaction to potentially occur. The viewer essentially is encouraged to stop, think, and feel. This stimulating experience will thus allow exploration of emotions and inner soul; perhaps subconsciously and honestly.
Intense color is thought to provoke frustration, anxiety and awe, but can simultaneously stimulate pleasure and satisfaction. During the initial stages of creating these works, a significant discovery became evident in the correlation between color and shape. The linkage of intrusive and extrusive shapes and their fusion with introverted and extroverted color is relative to the experience of fear and despair, as well as hope and happiness. Contrasting colors and shape compliment one another, creating a powerful and emotive combination. This dynamic fusion enforces the engagement and heightens the complexity of emotional radiance from both form and color with the viewer to reflect and evoke raw, pure, emotions within. Through my abstract paintings or painting-installations, human emotions of melancholy, tragedy, elation, doom and awe are portrayed. And with contrasting colors and shape; a reflection of the complex nature of human emotions occurs with the viewer, birthing interaction on a more intimate level. Summer season brings the glow, light, energy and warmth. People as also every living piece can feel that positive, emanating energy. Some kind of power of sun's light gives the strength to cross the stagnant borders of self-protection and encourages doing previously impossible things. The aim of my paintings is to pass the glow of this unique, raising energy of the summer. The quality, technique and contrast of the colors used are due to provoke the viewer's strong emotional reaction. To achieve the feeling of growing, penetrating power of something strange but elevating and absorbing.
