In my work I strive to take a scene, a person or a landscape and condense it into a very direct and simplified statement. My goal is to strip away all of the superfluous detail and present each scenario in its essence. I try to reach a point where details are not important, and specifics don’t matter.  This sense of ambiguity or vagueness allows viewers to interpret each painting in their own ways, to attach their own meanings and significances, and to experience these scenes on their own terms and according to their own desires. The precise “who and where” that may form the source of each painting therefore becomes irrelevant at the end.
