    There is a different rhythm of painting on different platforms as with different techniques.Working on paper leads me to different directions than the canvases, because it structures its sensitivity and its thickness. I am attracted to Handmade paper, paper which reflects its vitality.There is no such variety in my paintings' platform as may be seen in their content.Yet, I try to stick to 2D. Thinking about painting without any relation to objects or any 3D entities,based on my belief that there are so many thing to do in painting for itself. There is much to do developing the visual wisdom in its 2D aspect.

    Format

    I work on many different formats from very small like 20\30cm up to 250\200cm. Every image has its own exact size which suits it. Some of the formats which I choose as a starting point, are those I believe to be difficult for painting(from the composition point of view) such as square format or very long and narrow formats(200\50cm).

    Technique

    I paint with everything which may serve the message of mine, usually I prefer colors. The rule of colors in the Vitality idea was explained before. You may find works without colors, or such works where the colors are not an important part of them, but they are rare. I use pencil, pen (many types) oil, gouache, water base colors, printing inks, oil pigments and you name it. My attitude toward Technique is the attitude of the river to its parts: water, stones, earth, animals, plants and its cleft, all together turn it into a river which flows into the ocean.
