Poems of nature is my inspiration. I use the properties of my medium to create abstract paintings that respond to both the atmosphere of my surroundings and poetry. I started them with unconscious, and completed them with conscious artistic taste. My paintings dance on the boundaries of realism and abstraction where consciousness meets the unconscious, and language meets the unspeakable. Like the meeting of these binaries, my work contains many layers of ideas and examines these interactions as a continuum. I use layers of transparent color, reveal forms by concealing and unearthing pentimenti and suggests elements of landscape in my process. The method of looking inward and outward and, in the moments of painting, finding my way on the surface is my approach to creating paintings infused with poetry and the memory of landscape.
