My subjects come from nature. I am interested in simple elements such as trees, water and earth. The motifs arise from my emotions, which I organize according to the perceived reality around me. Impressions, experiences and memories inspire me when I am painting. Today is present as much as the past. I am fascinated by the way landscapes can embody time. When I am in the process of painting, my work continues instinctively. My techniques include oil, acrylic, tempera, India ink, coal and watercolor. I paint “alla prima” or layer by layer. When I succeed, I may find new meanings to everyday reality.
My works are influenced by the cycles of nature and the changing seasons. When the light increases in spring, painting is easier. My landscapes are built of opposites such as light and shadow, heavy and airy, unfinished and finished.
