Art Reflections
    As an artist, one must first be independent in thought and character, and aware of the importance of ¡°individuality¡±. It is this ¡°individuality¡± which receives its full expression in painting and which alone creates meaningful art. I have always turned to ¡°abstract art¡± as the best way to express myself, and I try to use it to deconstruct representational reality and other authoritative discourses. Your attitude determines your art; this is something I firmly believe, and it¡¯s a belief that can only be developed in abstract painting, which is extremely inimical to representation painting. Each of these paintings attempts to bring together all my artistic experience, all the paths I¡¯ve taken, into one painting. I decided to continue using the dots I¡¯ve used in the past, to bring out a sense of modernity or a modern industrial element. The size of the dots and their arrangement, were determined only after some experimentation. They also bring out the paintings¡¯ experimental character, and the potential for exploring the unknown world.
