“HEAD MAZE & HUMAN MAZE. My art is my meditation. The process is about examining myself and my surroundings: it is my way to observe and to get closer to the space of reality between.
The world of bodily sensation is captured within the maze of my work. The deliverance of visual representation of the patterns, the source, the factors that condition our sensations and create our own realities is my ambition.
The single line that interconnects brain and heart speaks of wholesomeness. It is my view of a balanced mind de-conditioned from external attachments, cravings, aversions, fears and dogma.”
