For as long as I can remember, reflecting or reacting to my physical environment, or to the social, political or economic factors of the time never interested me. My mind has always been immersed in abstract problems of one kind or another. All means of learning can explore abstract problems, some with greater accuracy and success, like math or physics, because they are universal, others, such as colors and forms are much more difficult because they are limited and have been used in a personal and subjective manner.
The ultimate abstract problem is the understanding of our universe. My eyes remain my primary tool for learning. The easiest way to understand the world around me, is through forms and colors. Endless trials and errors, taught me, the only way to reach a high level of universal understanding, is through purity and abstraction of forms and colors. during many experiments, I learned that colors and forms, unlike numbers and music, are highly modifiable. It is this transient quality of forms and colors that has led the majority of painters to deal with the many facets of reality. Instead of thinking in forms and colors on a pure, abstract and universal level, two aspects of painting have grown. Turning to more variations of reality and to a greater visual sensationalism. That is, creating objects that look different regardless of their essence, meaning, or existence. The transient quality of forms and colors, limited the initiations of two great abstract painters, Mondrian and Kandinsky, to their unique genius. Their followers merely copied their styles, rather than expand on their initiations on a mental level and evolve their efforts into maturity.
Due to the transient nature of forms and colors, thinking at higher levels, would require an objective and structured mind. My search with forms and colors took me to diverse and confusing paths. I made many discoveries, as well as getting derailed many times. Endless failures, and repeated frustrations did not deter me from my work.
About three years ago, I made my first initial attempts at showing how the universe functioned. The first early works were awkward and clumsy. But with time, I have been able to perfect and expand my theory into new visual discoveries.
I know the secret to our universe, is in its ability to generate balance. Since balancing is the core secret to universe's existence, the universe is ever changing. For every existence, action or entity, there is an event, existence or entity to balance it. Although it would seem that the opposite of an action or event, such as order, would balance chaos, the balancing force need not always be the opposite. Many times, a completely different existence, event or action would balance an entity. The balancing force could be of different nature, size, or power. For instance, population explosion in one part of the globe could be balanced by one or several other factors, such as shrinkage in population in other parts of the world, increase in food production, increase in wealth, or making the inhabitable territories habitable.
In my work, I try to invent many different ways to show the presence of balance in our universe: it is of every dimension, weight and constitution. It is of every duration, presence or absence. In some instances, the power to balance, kicks in immediately, because an entity would require it, "Blue With Red" and the "Two Blues", are examples. In other instances, an entity may go in a given direction for a long time before the act of balance sets it. At times, the balancing force may not seem related to that entity, "For my Brother", in reference to my brother's illness, immense losses and suffering in life, has been balanced by my deep love and devotion to him, and the effort of good people who have been charitable and kind.
It must be noted that in designing and executing every painting, forms and colors were the determining factors in their formations, not math, physics, music or verbal thinking. The imposing rules were those derived from forms and colors. At all times the integrity of forms and colors superseded every other consideration.
