Artist Statement

I never expect that inspiration will come to me on a daily basis - I just go to my studio and get myself ready for working hard and then, in hours, inspiration can come along if I'm lucky. But it is not guaranteed. Only hours of hard work and practice help to create something spectacular. I think what I am bringing to the world within my creativity. I believe that artists are responsible for every brush stroke we produce.. The more beautiful and positive art works created today, the better will be the world we are living tomorrow. Art is the most powerful tool to keep this world in balance and harmony.

Your Best Painting Curated by Artelibre Gallery with collaboration of the MEAM Museum



Virtual Exhibition of figurative artists
A tribute to figurative art - contemporary realist, curated by Artelibre Gallery with collaboration of the MEAM - European Museum of Modern Art

Starting May 10 with all the inscriptions made in the exhibition "Your best painting", we will make a catalog to commemorate this special exhibition, which was proposed at a special time and which came to fill a gap in the world of art and culture, a tribute to today's figurative-realistic art world.

In this time where artists have been confined to our homes, our studios and a large number of cultural spaces have remained closed.
A universal and open exhibition, where the illusion, the desire to participate, the desire to be and share together with colleagues, friends, teachers, admirers have prevailed ... where we believe it has been the best way to carry out an event of these characteristics.

Link to the exhibition: https://www.artsy.net/show/33-contemporary-ambivalence

 

““Human nature and the human condition has always interested me greatly as I studied Psychology and have always sensed the inherent duality in people and their behaviour. The idea that we all have some or other ambivalence towards life, objects, people, emotionally and spiritually. The tiny voice that makes us question why we feel the way that we do. This ambivalence could have accompanied us from our youth and formed our characters unknowingly. It could have created the ethos by which we live or made us doubt what we see, read or experience.The uncertainties we experience or the contradictory ideas that beset us, ultimately to become the people that we are. It is the positive and negative that we feel towards something or someone that causes us to act in a myriad of ways. It can also be to our detriment as it speaks of mixed emotions which are difficult to control.I think, not being a creative person myself, I have often looked at an artwork and wondered how the artist might have struggled to convey what they really intend to. ””
