My goal as a painter is to create an illusion in a painting and in the process to incorporate theatre and dance thus creating a unique and
ephemeral world. I create an illusion without limits. The duality represented in my artworks revolves around the transformation of a material
object to an immaterial one thus creating a pictorial illusion. The mimesis will be the path of truth and beauty from material to the immaterial.
