Art is the transfiguration of the banal. Is a philosohy, a way of expressing the lightest, clearest, most elevated aspects of the spirits. Art must awaken plesant sensations in the viewer. One can identify beauty by the pleasure it provides,whereas ugliness is identified with pain.
I have explored color, light, space and above all, transparency. Adapting historic Flemish technique, I developed my own way to create optical effects of rhytm in space. The colors give fullness to the forms : a spirit and a resonance which generate energy. The forms suggest a vision of an unknown world- virtual, capturing a moment of a voyage outside of time.
My work has evolved through several stages:
-oil on canvas. The forms appaer translucent and theree-dimensional.
- painted sculpture in relief on canvas. I extended the apparently 3D painted forms into real 3D.
- transparent painted sculpture. Is the real 3D.
- installation of oils on paper
- installation of painted transparent sculptures.
