As a developing artist, I was fascinated with German Expressionism and US Abstract Expressionism. As a gallerist, I collected the works of Alechinsky and Corneille, artists from the Cobra movement, with which I have clear affinities; my own works have even been displayed alongside those of its members. I always painted with a similar spirit of freedom and spontaneity, and continue to do so with a natural talent for creating a balanced but eccentric piece that would at once be original and recognized as avant-garde, with echoes of the prehistoric and the Orient. Based on the union of the cerebral with the physical, it expresses a striving to perceive the truth in the beauty of the soul and in myriad forms.
