“Light and Movement” This body of work explores the intersection of light, movement, and painterly techniques. “My oil paintings offer an blend of abstract realism, capturing everyday experiences in a dynamic and expressive way. I play with light and shadow to create depth and drama. In some pieces, I use bold strokes and heavy impasto to convey movement and energy, while in others, I build up layers of color to create a sense of atmosphere and mood. One of my favorite subjects to paint is musicians, and you'll see several pieces in which I've tried to capture the rhythm and soul of live performance. I strive to capture the energy and emotion of these moments. Another recurring theme in my work is busy kitchen scenes, which allow me to explore the interplay of light, texture, and color in a more intimate setting. Whether it's the warm glow of a stovetop and a steamy kitchen. I aim to create a sense of depth and richness that draws the viewer in. By blending the techniques of abstract and realist art, I aim to create a style that is both contemporary and timeless, capturing the beauty and complexity of everyday life in all its many forms.”
