Through my collages, paint brushes and burnings, I search endlessly for the light. Colors overcome one another and often require just one brush stroke –  the right one- to put the whole composition in place. Then, suddenly a ray of light appears from under or over the colours like a sparkling beacon. This is where I seize the moment and stop. The painting is finished.

The way I layer my materials has a purpose.  I make them ‘unveil’ themselves after I burn the collage elements. Then comes the moment of self-confrontation. I camouflage and hide certain pictorial passages in order to better reveal others.

I pose questions through my art. It is how I observe the world, how I indulge and infuse my work with the weight of ancient history that is so much a part of my heritage. My paintings are very much about a physical experience, an encounter, the result of an experiment. In this way everything  can become a source of inspiration and subject for my investigations.
