During the decades, he has created “Liquefaction”, a series of unique paintings in a style that uses flowing, liquid-like, interlocking lines by acrylic to create a mixture of various patterns which dynamically express both individual objects and their surroundings.
Scenes of life are distorted into a panoply of unexpected shapes. Rhythmic lines and shades imply the balance between rules and freedom. The precise lines represent the social rules, whereas the freestyle patches represent his desire for freedom.
