Through his watercolors, artist explores the boundaries of the medium, the conviction of scale in watercolor and the necessity or accordingly lack of the background. The paintings are fluid and translucent, as is water color. In these series spots of color and water come together, in a slow motion and patient manner, to create large scale paintings that their accuracy and size are contradictory to the well established genre of water color painting. The control of artist on the medium and his clarity about his subject is evident and the next act is to have the animated subjects of the paintings at the gallery to complete the installation.
