“I am discovering new worlds in oil painting. Although I do not explore objects, this does not mean that I am not interested in reality. I am searching the hidden side of nature for the flow of densely woven waves within the elements of earth, fire, water and air. At first sight, my paintings could be viewed as single cells, organisms, or biological building blocks – a microscopic world locked in a Petri dish. As I paint, I create a balance between the planned and the improvised. The forms of the painting open up a new world to the imagination of the viewer. After much experimentation I hit upon the lacquer technique, which I feel provides the best means of visualizing the effect I am aiming at.”
