In these early works I have explored the notion of inner space both as it can be experienced by a silent mind, and expressed visually. More than intending to paint an object of focus I was evoking the space in which the focus happens.

In most of these paintings very little is happening ; they refer to an inner state of calm where only exists a primordial pulse, heart beat, the in and out of breathing, the cycle of contraction and expansion in the body or in the emotional realm. I could almost remember the feeling of the baby when she was being rocked, that dilatation in reverie.

I was also exploring the quality of my presence and focus while working to see if it was enriching the painting with a subtle quality, so that even though the work itself was giving little visual information it would emanate enough to keep the viewer interested.
