Impressions series represents a new phase of my work started in 2013, but integrates in it, as usual, intimations of my past work, enduring patterns of inner experience and conceptual processes as a continuous work in progress being a reflection on the “act of painting”.
The visual materiality belonging to this series is intimately related in its conceptual process and representations to the the physicality of repetition/overlapping marks to conjure patterns of new images digitally reworked and reimpressed from my own paintings, and then painted and drawn again showing a interplay of transition between organic forms, geometric structures and colors.
The naming of Impressions refers to various layers of meanings as well as a working process. There is a display of interpretations of atmospheric/ psychological imprint: I approach the paintings in this series as images/impressions that allude also to particular moods through their shifting complextions, being marks from Memory and Nature.
