From the artist:
I like the juxtaposition of structure, speed and pace in urban spaces. Lines with fluidity create an immediate sense of order versus chaos but both languages conspire to convey paradoxical complexity and intensity. This reminds me of Peter Ackroyd’s London “Each area of London has its own unmistakable character nurtured through Time and History together they resemble a thousand vortices within the general movement of the city. It is impossible to look at them steadily or envisage them as a whole because the impression can only be one of opposition and contrast. Yet out of these oppositions and contrasts London itself emerges as if it sprang into being out of collision and paradox.” Perhaps through the use of lines against complex background washes I have taken it upon myself to envisage and express London as a whole within the framework of a painting. I am of Romanian parentage but from London and have always seen my work as a direct result of my immediate environment.
