The content and subject matter of my paintings emanates from autobiographical constructs. With them, I also explore formal and conceptual issues in painting and art history that are of my interest. The physicality of the materials used responds to the narrative that is being constructed; some sort of cause-effect relationship is established. The materials become active participants of the visual discourse that is unfolding in the painting. The compositions are a continuous tension between the formal and the informal, the static and the dynamic. Color carries the load of my expressive being; with it, I give tangibility to my feelings, emotions, and craves.
