“I'm fascinated by the beauty hiding in plain sight, everyday scenarios with just the perfect light or a very interesting composition and I'm obsessed in finding the magic and meaning in reality. Without narrative, my work explores the relations between color and shape up to the point of near abstraction, vibration and harmony. This painting is a view of a Japanese traditional Geisha rippling across the colors and shapes to the point of nearly abstraction.” Edgar
