I am a versatile painter working in oil, cold wax and acrylics. My work is mostly abstract. My interest in the human being led to the development of my artistic theme: the complexity of the human being and the influence of our past experiences on our current experiences. I discovered that the oil and cold wax with its soft, transparent consistency is an ideal material for expressing the layered nature of memory, our past experiences. I also use acrylics because of their short drying time. When working with the oil and cold wax, I create rich and complex surfaces by applying several layers while scratching in them with different tools. This creates a lot of depth in the work. The layers created in my paintings are intended to bring the layers of memory and the influence of our past experiences to life. Every experience is colored by the foregoing. The transparent or opaque layers in my work refer to these experiences. Each layer shows signs of previous layers and includes pieces of life that are trapped inside. Sometimes these traces and pieces of life come to the surface and determine how the surface looks, sometimes they stay hidden underneath but there always remain traces. The process itself creates my work, not a pre-established plan. It's a growth process and each step is important and well thought out. Drawing upon my training as a psychologist, I incorporate into my work a variety of ideas, infusing it with another range of textures beyond the pictorial. This gives it a more open-ended character that invites the viewer to appreciate it in his or her own way. Mark Rothko and Richard Diebenkorn influence my work.
