Reflection inevitably incorporates
intense scrutiny and introspection. The works on exhibit represent
an attempt to analyze the ebb and flow of the creative process
and to evaluate my creative output in order to explore new directions
using new materials.
Over the years, my work has progressed
from hyper-realism to abstraction. My early paintings depicted
recognizable single images with shiny, industrial surfaces. Soon
I began to combine several images onto one surface in a kind
of collage. I continued with this process of unraveling and reconstructing
till I found myself working with fragments - human or otherwise
- creating narrative compositions whose origins were based on
collage. In these works abstraction and representation went hand
I am currently engaged in studying
the singular aspect of what is left over after deconstruction.
Can some sense be made of a fragment? Can it permutate into something
that has meaning for me? I hope the viewer will be sensitive
to the personal imagery which emerges.
