Dominic writes:

“My art reveals my particular way of viewing the world. Abstraction is the language of my work and it gives me the opportunity to invent new forms. The sources of inspiration for my art are images in surroundings that are often unnoticed, landscapes that are not appreciated, and objects that are ignored; representing people and their sets of interests which may be perceived as insignificant. Abstraction, then, can serve to be a political force. My work expresses the importance and beauty in some of the overlooked and nearly invisible things of life, giving the viewer a glimpse of the intangible.”
