In my work I create abstract images. This type of abstraction doesn’t happen through the reduction of something visible. It is created through visual ideas - originated in the invisible part of the world – much like music, or mathematics. These ideas are becoming visible through the compositions built from more or less complex geometric forms, transparency, color, structure, ratio or rules as repetition, symmetry, etc. If we want to use a label to describe this type of work, we could call it geometric abstraction.
The way our mind is creating a translation of an image is a complicated process – many things can get lost or added through the interpretation. Basically, through the understanding of a new image, the art piece can help us to open up new ways to understand the world or ourselves from a new or another aspect. With a new combination of visual elements, an image can help us to be more aware of the process of the interpretation itself. Providing the freedom of forgetting about preconceptions or contexts, the compositions are inviting the viewer through enjoying the immediacy of this abstraction to develop an independent, individual interpretation.
My compositions are about abstraction itself, instead of referring to anything from the visible world. Abstraction is the basic subject of my work because whether we are aware of it or not, our brain is built to work with abstract systems and we live and function through abstract thinking.
Also abstraction makes possible the transmission between the reality of the world outside and our inner entity. It is also the mental field where culture exists, where we can communicate and find social symbiosis
The expression of inner thoughts is transposed and the flow of information presumes transmitters, by various mediating agents, composed of abstract language systems, such as a spoken or written language, music or mathematics. These language systems possess numerous common features, e.g. structure, rhythm and ratio are found in all that then become the elements, with the addition of color that my compositions are based on.
With a traditional way of painting combined with a world of simple forms I am expressing new visual contents in the current era – one that is characterized by a way of seeing strongly influenced by technology and industrial development.
