While the actuality around me is congested, my painting is an imagery of a mystical landscape, its creation being a way for me to communicate with my dream reality. My monochromatically painted works meld a more current existence with memories, by symbolically infusing colored imagery only into certain objects. Often, the city is a framed contour of the object. This mystical composition also sparks a dialogue between the two facets of time.
