The essence of all art (and life) is light.

As without light, there will be no color, no shape and no life.

From Caravaggio, to Claude Monet’s Rouen Cathedral and the installations with fluorescent tubes of Dan Flavin, all art, intentionally or unconsciously is in fact an attempt to capture light. Accordingly, the fundamental nature of art is “light painting”.

My work is a combination of the three basic essentials: light, color, shape. Light itself and color in the form of both (neon) light and paint, all to portray the perceptible shape of things. All shapes are in fact reducible to abstraction, because abstraction is only a question of focus. Abstraction is, in my opinion, a philosophical quest of the soul of things.

We are open to commissions, both private and for companies, e.g. a commissioned work of art with the company logo incorporated.
