Just as much as I feel the need to be in contact with nature, every now and then I also feel the need to get into the “metropolitan jungle”. I love the strong contrasts as well as the dark greys, dark metropolitan colours, although just like in the woods with their lime green scrub, they can suddenly project vivid colours, like the cityscape of a yellow taxi in New York or the strong glint of a large glass wall that brings to mind sparkling sea water.
Metropolis has its deep magic too, my task is to bring it to the surface making it visible to the eye and consequently, also to the soul. I have 2 ways of entering the metropolis: one more figurative and one more abstract.
In the figurative one, I often depict the strong contrasts between the darkness of the night and the lights of the busy nightlife enhanced by action painting. The most abstract metropolis field is called city-scape and it’s created using enamels like all my artworks but instead of using brushes, I use various sizes of palette knives that create a geometrical abstract of buildings and urban architecture.
