Artistic Statement

I take sunlight and transform it into the colors of my paintings. The Sun’s energy passes into them.

My work comes from nature. I’m inspired by the sky, the sea, the line of the horizon, by the dusks and dawns, by the curves of the mountains and of the female body. I generalize images, often reducing them to geometric shapes. I think that the viewer recognizes them subconsciously, reading off their meanings and reconstructing the original picture in his imagination.

My colors are pure and my shapes are clear. I use the best paints, only sometimes adding linseed oil; I don’t use solvents, White Spirit or other chemicals.

My pictures come from nature – my only teacher.
