ARTIST STATEMENT:
I am inspired by  spatiality in painting and how to build it or not. Impulses like personal handprint and  painting gestures are  my tools, also when sculpting. Style of gestures varies according the subject from unpersonal flat fields to organic meanderings : repeats, manias, automation and very slow or fast way to work are also my material, likewise  working after observation from landscape or other kind of model. My primary interest is visuality , I am not a literal story-teller. Material qualities of artwork, like pigments or surface structures are important for me as are choices of dimensions, color relations, tension and interlacement of areas in picture or sculpture.
