Delibluz - 2014 - Multimédia numérique, 91 x 91 cm

J'aime créer de l'art contemporain dans les médias numériques. Les fractales, les formes géométriques, les éléments abstraits et l’utilisation d’une palette de couleurs audacieuses sont au premier plan de mon travail. Créée dans les médias numériques depuis 2003, je suis actuellement en train d'explorer le domaine de la gravure numérique alternative.
En réfléchissant sur le passé, en me connectant au présent et en envisageant l'avenir, je suis en mesure de répondre à un besoin créatif permanent et à un désir artistique. La plupart de mes expressions personnelles ont parcouru un long chemin avant d'être visuellement vivantes. Chacun d'eux représente un marqueur significatif dans le temps et dans l'espace et fait partie de ce voyage créatif passionnant que je suis. J'ai fait beaucoup de détours en chemin, mais je suis toujours passionnément curieux et je cherche toujours l'inspiration de stimuli internes aussi bien qu'externes.
Tout comme une déclaration d'artiste est considérée comme un «document vivant» (susceptible de changer en permanence). . . mon art aussi. Il vit temporairement sous la forme de pixels et de code binaire intégrés à mon ordinateur et est soumis à des nuances artistiques illimitées, avant de décider finalement de manifester l'œuvre d'art originale en dehors de sa matrice. La seule chose constante est le changement.
J'adore la technologie numérique et adore le sentiment de liberté qui découle de la création abstraite. J'ai hâte de grandir continuellement en tant qu'artiste et de laisser mes marques en cours de route.
«En tant qu'artiste, je suis capable de flotter dans les eaux douces de mon esprit et d'exprimer la turbulence des tempêtes de la vie.
Chacun de mes sens se connecte à un voyage de souvenirs et de relations tout au long de la vie. Ce sont les repères sur lesquels je réfléchis et que je puise.

I love to create contemporary art in digital media. Fractals, geometric forms, abstract elements & the use of a bold colour palette are prominently featured in my work. Creating in digital media since 2003, I am currently exploring the realm of alternative digital printmaking.
By reflecting on the past, connecting with the present and envisioning the future, I am able to fulfill an ongoing creative need and artistic desire. Most of my self-expressions have travelled a long path before being brought to life visually. Each one represents a significant marker in time & space and is part of this thrilling creative journey I am following. I have taken many detours along the way, but always remaining passionately curious, and forever seeking inspiration from internal as well as external stimuli.
Just as an artist's statement is considered a “living document”, (continually subject to change) . . . so too is my art. It temporarily lives in the form of pixels and binary code embedded in my computer, and is subject to boundless artistic nuances, before finally deciding to manifest the original work of art outside of its matrix. The only thing constant is change.
I embrace digital technology and love the free-spirited feeling derived when creating abstractly. I look forward to continually growing as an artist & leaving my marks along the way.
“As an artist, I am able to float in gentle waters of my mind, as well as express the turbulence of the storms of life.
Each of my senses connects to a lifelong journey of memories and relationships. These are the markers which I reflect and draw upon.”
