“My art works on three levels. Firstly the pieces are a visual experience: the play of proportions, shades and shapes along with textures combined to a balanced, harmonious composition that hopefully caught your eye. Then there is what I call the visceral experience: where one feels the balance of the composition, where one experiences the luminosity, color and shapes on a deeper level, where the light and glow of polish or gold leaf resonate within one. Finally there isĀ  the cognitive experience: the contemplation of shapes and colors, the discovery and interpretation of details, like the memento universi* and suggested forms that invite the viewer to enter the piece, experience it and interact with it, thus connecting the circle to the visual and visceral aspects of my art where the beholder started out from.”
