The recent years, I have been exploring the boundaries of Photography and Paintings. My intend was to create a symbiosis and establish new formulas in order to combine my often contradictory interests as artist. I alternated and switched the methods of the two medium. The Photographic prints are selected close up shots which I collected during my travels to New York City. Those matte surfaces are mounted on canvas and remind the viewer of painterly abstractions.
In the Glass Devices I sandwich pigments and paints over extended periods of time with sun exposure in-between Glass and Canvas. The layers of Glass are also simulating our daily interaction with screens from I-phones, computers, etc…. raising further questions about illusion and reality – an original and a copy – describing an awareness between the existing conditions and a fictional environment.
The contrast of the different surfaces in my works, matte and highly glossy and reflective works, is creating different levels of depth and illusions. The glossy surfaces are reflecting like a Kaleidoscope once installed in space and interacting with the viewer’s perception. The sensations and details are playing with the known and unknown of our memory in Space and Time in order to connect to intuitive thinking rather then the reading of context
