WOW – WAVE OF WIND
“Abstract painting has always been the cathartic action through which I channel my innermost energy. My goal has always been to reach beyond your most immediate senses; it is my intention for you to be able to feel the full strength I infuse in each and every artwork I produce.
To be at the threshold of technology and to interpret the dynamic force of Porsche design through the energy I place in my painting was an incredible and beautiful challenge.
My challenge was to reveal the sensation of speed through form. To see the unseen and convert the emotion into a physical art piece.
Through a thorough and methodical research I learned about the latest cutting-edge technology being used in automotive and reflecting painting materials; the result was finding a formula that would absorb the energy of light and heat and would later convert into a source of light and energy as well; this innovative material once applied into an equally highly-developed artificial surface will translate into an effect of luminosity, strikingly evident in the absence of light.”
