Did I do something wrong?
The “Bell” series consists of sixteen abstract artworks. When put together another image is revealed. That’s not what I want to put emphasis on, however.
This series began with an idea, as everything else we see in this world. What I focus on is how much more valuable that idea can become. After gridding the image, sixteen pieces remained. Every piece is an effort to separate it from the idea. Freeing it from the subject. To go deeper in abstraction, I focused on the physical and technical aspects, to the essence of a painting. When the integration is done, the paintings should be beautiful enough to hang alone. They become something else. Something more if you ask me, but an artwork doesn’t need validation from the artist, it needs interpretation from the observers.
