Create is also to create oneself, so as to be able to find oneself in the work and its transformation. The artist is a medium that tries to capture a message; the principle of analogy that arouses it and incites it to reveal this message is the same one that induces it not to reveal: to keep the secret of the perception hidden or to conceal it within the work itself, as in this case where the Tibetan symbol of cosmic union, the yantra, remains camouflaged in the background of colours in order to be discovered only by those who are able to recognize it.
“His works function as a prism, guiding the viewer through a moment of pause and play, a moment of focus, where the outside world takes a back seat”
