Abstraction in painting offered a space of freedom in which organic or geometric, theosophical or mathematical issues could be addressed in a universal language that did not risk offending social conventions.

In general, there are two types of abstract paintings. The first type of abstract painting portrays objects that have been “abstracted” (taken) from nature. A second type of abstract painting, sometimes referred to as “pure” abstract art, is even more obtuse. Such paintings do not reflect any form of conventional reality: all you see are shapes, colors, lines, patterns, and so on.

To me, my initial commitment to the canvas is what matters most. Through this commitment, I embrace and express my feelings. Whether oil, acrylic, pastels or Encaustic, my art is a powerful vehicle to express my feelings and emotions.
