"The Covid pandemic, which started in 2020, changed my art. In my ‘before’ paintings I expressed tranquility by using earthy tones. In my new series of work, I summoned upwards energy with the use of bold and colorful shapes. I load the canvas with layers of papers, paint, and marks. This generates unexpected surface with history, and mystery. When I reach a point of saturation, I start to intentionally edit out and cover parts of the painting. Traveling with a paintbrush, brings to life, and activates shapes on the way. With repeated elements I create a poem - my paintings are my music. While wandering around the painting one can find treasures along the way."
