I started my life in art as an abstract painter and for me the transition to realism is a logical progression. Details are the most noteworthy element of my work and everything examined on very close inspection becomes abstract. Artists can see things in general and reduce them to their gist, or see things in particular and enlarge them to their grandeur – I work with the latter. The minute details fit together and build an object from the inside out: they evolve from the abstract to the realistic. During the hours and months of that evolution I am happily ensconced in the abstraction. While the forum of still life uses objects to reveal things, the forum of abstract art is a more emotive expression – I hope that the resulting response to my work will be understood and felt.
