Artworks in the “Floating forms” series are mostly inspired by memories of people and places encountered in my many trips and journeys around the world. The works evoke familiar objects and subjects, yet in an abstract, almost dreamlike representation. These large paintings attract from afar for the contrasting masses. By getting closer, one can discover a multitude of shapes and details that stimulate curiosity and foster emotions. Most present a palette of earthy tones of neutrals, shades of blue and rusty affects achieved by using metal and stone powders. Others are inspired by seasonal colours and shades.
