I experimented for years with a tremendous range of techniques and ideas, trying to evoke a sense of mystery equivalent to that which I feel in the presence of nature, a sense of momentary.
I enjoy exploring how various weather conditions breathe life into most usual places, the ones we pass without noticing. The rain, the snow, the blinding sunshine and the mist change the contours, the forms and of course, the colors of the city we are used to take as a static image. We are used to think of well-known locations and may sometimes not realize a ray of sunshine or a reflection in a paddle, and not a building makes for an accent in the picture we see.

I love when in the works are secret, mystery, intrigue. Art should not be a blind imitation of nature, it can’t be compared with nature and photographs. So I love painting, which expands our perception of reality, exacerbates it. I like expressionism and surrealism.
