Artistic Statement:

My artistic statement via my art is nothing less than to revolutionize the way people see and think about art and what an artist consists of. It is for this reason that I have not limited my self to simply painting but as well to writing. As art these days requires that the artist is able to conceptualize his or her place in art history both in practice and in thinking, hence, why I paint and I write books. My latest book: Color-Realism: (The Essence of Color and Reality) is located in the National Gallery of Canada___'___'_____________'______________™s library as a testament to my philosophy of color and my art. My artistic style is that of glittering abstract paintings in the format of a new painting technique called Color-Realism, which brings to the forefront the analysis of color and its effects. Color-Realism is based on the notion that color is the basic language of human emotions and ideational concepts that construct our mind. The style is a supra-impasto technique in the form of thickly applied paint with a layer of glitter, which makes the painting radiate, and gives the painting movement in the sense that as the viewer walks around the painting the image actually changes, change the lighting and so does the image, which is the first time in the history of painting that such an effect is possible as with color-realism paintings the image is now dynamic and multi-dimensional, rather than static as previous art has been. This is a first for modern art.

My art is jewelry for your walls, it is a shimmering litany of fllickering colors that stimulate the imagination and sense of joy and wonder in the viewer. The art is about communication of basic emotional experiences via color. With color-realism, traditional conceptions of the image have given way to a mosaic of color differentiations, jewelry for your walls.
