"The images of his paintings emerge from a black, dark, indefinite magmatic background. The boundaries of images are never sharp, defined, regular. They are rarefied, attenuated, enigmatic, ambiguous, mysterious. They are evolving forms. We do not know if they are born or are dying, if they emerge from that dark background or are sinking into it. Some shapes almost float on the void"
