My pictures are geometric abstractions founded on the principle of contrast, the relations of lines and color, the rhythm of vertical and horizontal lines and the harmony of pure forms. Straight lines express calm and measured movement. Verticals and horizontals are static and composed. The predomination of some over others creates an emotional ring.
Black-and-white compositions are more active in perception. Black unites and fortifies the composition, and creates a clear motif. Rhythmic movement in the form of repeated motifs, moves from light to dark and the proportions of tonal relations and areas are other items in the compositional principle.
