Description 
Malaga, Andalusia, Spain. The Mediterranean port city of Malaga has its own "11th century palatial fortification". The slight slope which leads up tp the fortress is only steps away from Malaga´s first century BC Roman Theatre. The "Impression Realism" here applied recalls the beautiful views of the sea visible from the walls surronding the Alcazaba and the personal experience of standing in the shore´s tide "getting ones feet wet".. There is always a hidden symbolic meaning behind the use of the shoreline in the foreground, viewed from within the water and the background showing the high sea. The passage of life.
fragments
Original oil paintings dedicated to the sharing of personal impressions received from the experiences recalled from special places. This realism collects these impressions which can be edited to appear together in the actual painting and represent a scene which actually does not exsist as so. There also appear elements which try to involve the spectator inviting them to enter into the painting. This can be achieved with perspective or, especially for me, the use of the shoreline in the foreground. These paintings also use texture on the surface, built up in oils, to not only mark the highlights but to also actually create different effects in different lightings. The built up surfaces undoutably create not only light reflection but shadows which, although hardly visible, change the overall effect. The time of the day and the change created by exterior or interior lighting reflect off the points of oil and will cause small but significant changes in the general atmosphere. In a way they can be thus brought to life, as if they breathe. The symbolism is always a subtle part of the artwork but maybe should not be just talked about as it could be discovered. One of the most wonderful appraisales I have received was to compare my work with poetry.
