Love Forever

60.9 x 76.2 cm

“Roses are the protagonists in my painterly plays and they are the main derive of my subjectivism. For me painting roses is the best way to express what I might call my own peculiar deep feelings about life. The impact of my paintings is determined by the tension between the figure’s physical presence and the spatial flatness of the setting, between realism and abstraction, between impression and expression.

The figures are forcefully defined and positioned comely and three- dimensionally in a setting free of other details; the aim is to achieve maximum of splendour with minimum effort.”
