Gallery – Abstract

Abstract painting uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition, which may exist

with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. It also can be an inner expression of the unconscious.

  • Sextet

    Inspired by interwoven patterns of music by J.S. Bach. Six linear geometrical forms overlap as six instruments play different, non-conflicting melodies in space and time. Perhaps I was ready to shake off old restrictions but still keeping structure and composition.

  • Unite Divisions

    Is there nothing anymore to unite us? A glitter in the eye, a gesture of a hand, a touch, a sound ‑Are we bound To the end?

  • Day of Wonder

    Perhaps one could assert that abstract art is the biggest victory over the indescribable.

Painting Medium – Abstract: Made use of all mediums, oil, acrylic, watercolour, ink drawings. The implementation done often through area painting that is colourful and conveys depth. To achieve a different appearance, images created in a Batik technique, oil paint applied transparent through glazing over canvas. Other treatments occurred with paintbrushes to make many crosshatch strokes that create an airy surface. Most abstract paintings came to be without a drawing, related to automatism.
