For several years my art has been a dialogue between abstraction and representation. For some reason or another, the medium I work in dictates what I create. My three dimensional work, mostly in metal, ranged from abstract compositions to figurative sculptures. In my works on paper I tend to work from what I see. My watercolors are inspired by landscapes, city scenes and visions from the subconscious. I have been doing for last 30 years, visual diaries, on long paper scrolls, that are like a comic book of my life. On canvas I have been working on abstraction so far. I like to create small series of paintings related to each other visually. For several years I created abstract configurations using letter stencils, so the shape of the letter dissolves in to a non figurative composition. I wanted to create a subliminal image related to reading and writing. Now I work on a series of paper collages on canvas, with abstract shapes cut out of hand painted paper.
