"My Fragments are stimulated from the passion of one artist to another showing a wide range of influences, including sources from the Renaissance to contemporary artists. The art that I have produced represents values that evoke the humanism and eroticism of the Old Masters and the conceptualism and innovation of the New Masters. The historical works I use are like pieces of a puzzle in my mind and I simply find its contemporary complement."
My work emphasizes freedom of creativity, the right to use and abuse imagery; including masterpieces, for personal aesthetic reasons and as a response to my space and time.
