Be provocative absurdity is underrated, if at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope.
The social and spiritual agenda of my oil painting, search for a distinct style. Revelation, and the using of a limited repertoire of recurring motif or subject matter, often lead me to use my intuition with my minimal reductionist style of vibrant colour and geometric shapes which require a high degree of effort to fill in the details. I particularly like Yellow, Crimson and Phthalo Greens. The painting which is at times primitive, I consider myself a painter who is examining the lay of the landscape and flatness of the picture surface. Overall my painted oeuvre is not large.
