"In the ensemble of this exhibition I have wanted to create an atmosphere in the beach city where calmness and gentleness pulsate simultaneously together with the awareness of the transience of all: moments, people, places, memories. Plants take over the ruins and there is some thingspecial in the air, the crisp glory of corals gets a deep tone.

In only a few works I show directly people but their presence is felt in the mood of the picture. Home-goers and joyful youngsters
only appear as indicative characters, but without them, emptiness would be felt.

The colours of the works in this exhibition are strong and the colour scale of the works is scarce. I have strived for a wiry line, the rhythm is also essential: strength is humility and humility is strength at the same time. There are countless new beginnings and innumerable ends simultaneously. ”
