Artist's Statement

My abstract geometrical artworks are generated from the heart of computer, by computer programs that transform my ideas into images. This kind of computer art is called algorithmic art since images are generated using algorithms, i.e. procedures coded in computer programs that describe how an image will look like and how it is to be generated. I use computer as a powerful tool and a partner in the creative process. I also use mathematics in my algorithms, but I don’t use it to visualize mathematical objects but rather as a tool that enables me to develop an idea I have about the work I want to create. All my works are titled, signed and numbered in a limited edition. I use only archival paper and ink.
