My impulse with abstraction is to explore organic forms. I want the forms to have the transformative quality of light and movement of a living entity. By overlapping colors for their illuminative and transparent effect, I can integrate illusionistic space. Highlighting and shadowing creates volume and depth whereby forms can float or remain grounded. I am interested in perceptual psychology and thus I set after the visceral experience of finger painting with pastels, oil and water media. I try to suggest a psychological space or setting where the forms appear active, responding to the here and now through movement.
