Innovations

Since falling in love with Rembrandt’s magic at the age of 11, I have been on life-long quest for perceptual, emotional, and intellectual discoveries. Implementing these discoveries as I work on my drawings and paintings, I am at the same time, asking myself, while painting, “What exactly am I doing?” in order to understand these innovations artistically and intellectually.


To date I have made several innovative contributions to evolutionary visual art in technique, content, and in aesthetics: Specifically in color theory, light theory, spatial theory, composition, psychology of body language, emotional states of being, integration of content with technique, insights into postmodern aesthetics, specialization in the aesthetics of Immanuel Kant and Ayn Rand, and creator of a radically new version of the Sublime.
