The Disclaimer at the beginning of a novel reads; this is a purely fictional novel, names, characters, places and incidents are the product of the author’s imagination, any resemblance to actual persons is entirely circumstantial. This disclaimer applies to my collages and paintings.
I am intentionally avoiding historical, traditional values and past personal experiences, relying solely on my imagination at the moment of being seduced by the opportunity, the materials and the empty surface, to create a wholly new visual entity. Working mostly with existing elements I assemble same, seeking the line, shape or texture that divide or unite to become the surprise of new experience, dictated by the given moment. The similarity and connection one might perceive between the various works is the result of a shared moment in time.
