There is gentleness about his paintings which is also characteristic of the man. No doubt, gentleness and calmness is his forte.
He has progressed through different phases, over his career taking him from figurative to abstract. Although his world view has not changed, his imagery has undergone a process of gradual clarification and refinement.
His abstractions are like a shifting beam of light which he has moved on paper. His artworks derive the liveliness from the dynamic paint application and the brilliance of the colours.

These abstract forms with its innate abstract and metaphoric possibilities are loose yet astute, free yet more cogent, its gesture as if caught in a wing.

His artworks do not suffer from being dryly symbolistic, sensationalist, or merely decorative – traits that sometimes plagues western abstract art. His abstractions are not fight into the unknown – it retains the possibility of evoking figurative and illusionist shapes.
The composition of his artworks hinges on the free-flowing spontaneity of the gestural and the precision demanded by structure.
He applies paint with vigour and often mostly with a broad brush. His artworks derive the liveliness from the dynamic paint application and the brilliance of colours. His paintings have a dense network of surfaces and lines from which the object emerges – only occasionally.
