Light and space, drawing with light is a result of time in isolation in these spaces, during which I saturated myself in the vast silence of the landscapes. The photographs taken during a light which is both, night and day, reveal the progression of methods humans have used in order to perceive and interact with space.
Light, a desert in itself, is the best language to describe the pulse of nature’s depths. The drawings in these anonymous landscapes from the East to the West coast appear only momentarily. It is depicted in these photographs following the same space as the natural landscapes to signify these progressions, generated by nature’s movement and visualize its forces and energy, allowing for a re-invigoration, re-interpretation and a new topography of the American landscape.
Since the early days of the medium photographers were drawn to the frontier and vastness of the Western landscape. It provides a reminder that although every landscape has already been discovered, there is always space for alternate perspectives to be explored.
Light transforms space.
This series of light and motion studies capture the beauty of these short-lived sculptures. Photography enables us to stop time for a moment and to capture this fleeting moment forever, to hold on to, what is in transition. When we perceive this light, we become part of the creation. Art, at the end of the day is always about perception. This concept allows us to truly work with light. Light occupies space, it has presence, and it is something you feel and read.
By creating these light sculptures in these photographs, a space within the space is depicted and it gives the impression of a stage, an alternative translation of the organic space behind it. These light sculptures will take on their own life by becoming still-lives created by light.
As a rule, we do not look at light but at what light reveals. My concept allows me to truly work with light. Light occupies space, it has presence, and it is something you will experience. It is a minimalist approach through geometric abstraction. I like the wonderful clarity produced by working with this type of abstraction as the process of using light allows me to manipulate the form.
We normally don’t look at light, we look at something light reveals. This concept allows us to truly work with light. Light occupies space, it has presence, and it is something you feel and read, the conscious use of light through minimalism and geometric abstraction.

Light transforms space. We normally don’t look at light, we look at something light reveals. This concept allows us to truly work with light. Light occupies space, it has presence. We are not looking at the light directly, but the narrative it creates, because light is everything.
