Ars Poetica

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”  Marcus Aurelius

A lot of people told us already that the world and all of its subjects are only a matter of perception. But is there a universal truth? Is there a point where angles meet? With my work I am looking for some kind of truth. Reality is not general, and maybe by examining surreality and multiple viewpoints we can reach a unity. More of my pictures can emerge with multiple explanation, more sense, but the questions are still open. Contradictions meet, not only in colors, but in shapes. Expressive meets definite edges, figurality in color extragavanza. Like the different brushstrokes reflect different people’s opininons. All the different mini universes form a whole, eject a harmonic view.
