Artist Statement

"Primal Creations" is my homage to nature,
its beauty, its sounds and flavors.

It is a vision that was born in me since my early childhood,
a vision that I always wanted to paint and that matured with me,
as I grew older.
It is an evolving adventure
in which creativity becomes a challenge and source of joy,
something that I want to share with people around the world.

The landscapes that people may see in my work
are not landscapes of any specific place.
They are universal and not an expression of any particular tradition.
One can travel through them across time and
cultures and seek in them a world of meanings as they wish.
