An artist's statement
s an artist, I paint on many different supports developing my personal abstraction vision using acrylic paints, as well as textures and other mediums.
My work as an artist is a seductive, beautifully shot study of the relationship between collective and personal crises. My innovative abstraction is looking for an extraordinary refinement and oscillates between binary opposites: imagination and observation, lucidity and frenzy. She blurs the boundaries between painting, drawing, and writing while preserving a high degree of love of the colors. My paintings are also in a constant state of flux and suggest different things to each of us. My work revolves around the great universal themes of love, art, beauty, and death.I see them as a springboard for the imagination. Lines, shapes and paint stains can suggest me some things I would never consciously designed.
I find my singular way into a landscape of social and human tensions. Initially, my desire to paint is the simple desire to reflect on the existential question: ÂŤWho am I?Âť. My painting style is the sum of my personality, my experiences and my meetings, all that I dared to do and be in my life so far. I try to apply it as much in painting figurative as an abstract way. This perception of myself and the world open almost unlimited possibilities of creation. This is why I always seeks novelty, surprise and risk-taking and I touch a certain universality that ties us all.This is what I paint that defines the contours of my painting since I started: she is unique, personal, identifiable, accessible, lively and full of freedom. My new purpose: a continuous conversation between me and the unknown.
