The reconstruction of self from outside perceptions.

If one tries to build a persona based on other people’s perceptions of Self, one may be faced with a Frankenstein-ization of self that can distort beyond recognition the true Self inside.

This bogus persona, a mumbo-jumbo of perceptions, opinions, sick mutilations of character, well or ill intended feedback, etc., is a reductio ad absurdum case based on fleeting, stroboscopic and colour-blind views of one great Soul. Yours. Mine.

One possible escape: one must look first and foremost inside one’s Self, then shine the light from the inside out, so as to never let the dark settle inside.

Formally schooled and trained in electronics with years of practice in related fields and project management, I found in the past few years a new passion in the creation of digital art.
My art focuses mainly on abstract, which I find more directly evoking emotions, is often thought provoking and, I dare to say, conducive to contemplative states.
Vivid colours play an important role in my art and are a reflection of my passionate nature and my deep love for Life and Creation.
