Manifesto/Interests

I believe that seeing comes before words, my purpose has always been to share the way I see. My main theme is in creating strong and dramatic abstract images that I call ‘Menacing Abstractions” because of their dark and mysterious nature. I use a camera as an artistic medium and a tool for experimentation. Lately being inspired by my images, I began to paint in acrylics, which has led to a new way of experimentation with this medium. Rather than recreating my photographs on canvas, I aim to express their essence in order to capture their power. .

CV / Biography Highlights

“What is Art but a way of seeing.” Thomas Berger

As an artist I am interested in how we see, create and transform images.
My work rests on the relationship between what is revealed and what remains
unseen.

For four years my main theme has been to create abstract images, which I
call Menacing Abstractions because of their dark and mysterious nature. I use a
camera as an artistic medium and a tool for experimentation. I work with natural
and artificial light in conjunction with different textures and an array of objects to
create visually engaging images. I manipulate objects with my hand as if creating
a painting and snap the photograph when an exciting image is revealed.

Lately being inspired by more than 10, 000 images, I began to paint in acrylics, which has led to a whole new way of experimentation with this medium, . Rather
than re-creating my photographs on canvas, I aim to express their essence in
order to capture their power.

My images are a way to communicate and interact with others and myself without
words. I recently began cataloging all of these photos and am thrilled to see the results of my transformations and what I have created. I am pleased to be able to share my Menacing Abstractions with the world.
