I am excited and fascinated each time I stand before a landscape. I draw inspiration from nature without any intermediaries, capturing the magic I feel in the air. Mostly, I depict scenes from my local surroundings, using various techniques, although oil is my primary medium. I lay down colors and shapes as I view them, omitting small details so that I can better capture the atmosphere of the place. Sometimes, the landscape I portray takes a wholly different form in my painting, as I access it from the archive of my memory and spell it out on the canvas. As a result, each piece acquires its own special rhythm. I am interested in limits; as faced by human beings and artists in their work. In my art, I transcend these boundaries, by expanding through the infinite open space of the landscape.
