The nexus between music and painting and ways of pictorially representing sound and silence, have been the main subjects of my work as an artist since 1980. This exploration has many facets from attempts at a pictorial representation of sound, to the creation of environments (maybe places or landscapes) that result from the sensations, feelings, states of mind and/or visions generated by music. My work has gone through different stages from attempts to illustration of specific musical work to explorations of aspects of the musical structure itself. This is, of course, purely subjective
The final phase of production in my work is distinguished by a return to painting, almost forgotten in my eagerness in use it as a medium instead of a purpose, and the utilization of all Iíve learned through the years about shaping a pictorial Ė not musical Ė art work, which held all the spiritual power of music, as an autonomous entity, without moving it away from itís musical sources by means of referent codes, which, I hope, made possible the identification of the theme by the viewer.
The resolution of this process continues to evolve as I grow as an artist and a person. It remains my principal challenge
