"For me, Abstraction is a place of collective and personal memories, experiences and emotions.
I'm a poet, a composer and an Old Master's son. As a contemporary artist, tradition is my ally and my enemy. I'm interested in the directness of Expressionism, the clarity of Hard Edge and the precision of the Renaissance painters.
Through a long, systematic and intuitive process, then, I aim to reflect the meaning of every brushstroke within the whole: anything matters here."
