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. Oil on canvas board / 76cm x 55cm / 1958

  • 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? Many steps have Divided us, Bridges broken down to raving depth from heights but silence, above all, has created a storm and blown out love and lights. Acrylic on […]

  • Beyond my Recollection

    A series of paintings in a similar manner of brush strokes, that give the areas an almost poetic life. The subject is a psychological dilemma in which I am trying to solve what I vaguely remember only in a visual presentation. Oil on Canvas / 116cm x 86 cm / 1962

  • Day of Wonder

    Perhaps one could assert that abstract art is the biggest victory over the indescribable. To create from the unconscious is more to the point, original as conscious work, providing the artist has made the transition from an apparent reality to a reality within his mind. Much is happening and one wonders how to interpret what one […]

    This painting belongs to the Series “The Element: CREATION” – in itself the title of a painting that illustrates the Big Bang theory.

  • Composition Textured

    Whatever explanation a viewer about this painting may be seeking, I would have to refer to clarifications in works as “Impromptu” and “Forms contrasted”. The latter is a graphite drawing with different designs in the many patterns as applied also in “Composition Textured”, except here enhanced and diversified through colours. Oil on canvas / 83.8 […]

  • Impromptu

    Over ten years ago, amidst painting representational for a decade, I sketched lines that would begin at any edge of the page, change direction, and overlap many times in different directions, in a non-conflicting way. By creating areas of different shapes and sizes, it was intriguing no matter how many times I did this exercise […]

    The earthly, worldly and  physically transition from a onetime stable, blooming existence, changing to a withering state before the winter is a metaphor to humans in that we hope the conversion toward an icy space may be gentle. Oil on canvas / 76.2 x 96.5 cm / 1998

  • Forms Contrasted

    Aside from the diversity of all the patterns displayed, note that a line begins at the upper left that has no dead-end but coincides to create fields with many different shapes and sizes. Those patterns have again various shades and graphic designs, in contrast to its surrounding. This type of spontaneous creativity and method I […]

    The title should be “Orange colour in Landscape”, used here to give the green a livelier and more interesting contrast. Oil on canvas / 55.8 x 76.2 cm / 1961

  • Order & Calculation Intruding

    In my last three Hard Edge paintings before the decade of the sixties ended, I refrained from geometrical straight lines and employed open, loose forms. In this painting a small square that appears constructive and organized enters from the left like an intrusion. As to the method of Hard Edge paintings, refer to image Cliff […]

  • Stretching and Yawning

    In my last three Hard Edge paintings before the decade of the sixties ended, I refrained from geometrical straight lines and employed open, loose forms.  After finishing this canvas, the central ‘figure’ suggested the comical title.

    To change the texture of the composition I employed different materials. A plain aesthetic experiment. Mixed media on Masonite / 50 x 50 cm /  1965 

  • Inside Out

      A personal statement about my twenty-five years of studying and painting with limited acknowledgement from the art world. Popularity of artists was also seasonal and short-lived. My dream of contributing to the creative side of painting came to an end. It seemed pointless. Inside Out was my last painting before I refrained from Visual Art for […]

paintbrush 50

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.
