"When you set out for Ithaka ask that your way be long... Ithaka gave you a splendid journey." C.P. Cavafy
These paintings are an introspective diary of my journey through life. This journey is a quest and an inspiration. It is what frees the soul from demons and obstacles. The dwelling places of the demons are in one's state of mind, and the mind has the power to create and dissolve. In this voyage, I attempt to broaden and brighten my perception of what surrounds me.
Diving into my internal landscapes, I retrieve images and combine them with external impressions to create a space, an experience, and an atmosphere that echo time. I paint with a sense of the direction I want to take, but I welcome unexpected turns along the way.
By integrating images and abstract forms and creating tension between discipline and improvisation, I look to convey an impression of my inner self and arouse the curiosity and imagination of the viewer.
