Painting links me to the world and represents the mean to communicate my emotions and feelings. It’s a silent language ignoring bounds and borders, bearing signification beyond words because true communication goes through silence. I claim lyric abstraction as a style, out of bounds and within freedom and creativity. Oil is my medium because of its sensuality, glare, and demands. I love the personal challenge it represents, requiring my surrender to painting. My inspiration often ensues from the choice of two colors, of their light plays, and the palette that is to be born. Successive layers cover canvas as instinctive consequences of spontaneous gestures and movements. Knife turns oil into a peculiar texture that invents reliefs and transparencies in recurring discovering processes.
