Moods and Styles

My mindsets, moods, and settings define the collection for my artwork.

I make single works and polyptychs. Sometimes the pieces are so close in mood and expressive manner that they become series.

  • Collections are usually defined by the mood and theme, or the environment in which artwork was made.
    For example, Eromind (erotic), or Life Figure (figurative). Some collections are built on a specific style influence, e.g. Zenga.
  • Series I usually set up by style, technique, palette, ground, and the visual approach to interpretation of the reality or ideas.
  • Polyptychs - usually diptychs, triptychs, or quadriptychs - contain two or more singles that are intended to be perceived together, in a specific sequence or arrangement.
