I started to paint after retiring from a career built of equations. While describing real life
processes with mathematics tickled my mind, creating art from a blank surface tickles
my whole being.
The process of painting itself is what fires my imagination. I believe that the hand
expressing subconscious feelings and the rational mind designing a work of art thrive
when they are a single step out of sync. When the latter is way ahead of the former the
painting is often stilted and lacks life. When the former is far in the lead the result is
usually utter confusion.
I enjoy creating room for the unexpected, to give the materials the possibility to interact
in random ways. This controlled chaos forces me to improvise, to stretch my
imagination and techniques in order to incorporate the results of these interactions into
the overall work. In my opinion, this leads to paintings that are alive and full of energy.
