My paintings are inspired by Biblical themes such as the Resurrection, the Ascension of Christ, the Rapture and the Kingdom of Heaven. Such themes and ideas are explored through various materials, ambiguous forms and vivid colors. My work deals with the human condition in relation to our turbulent and uncertain times.
