“My pictures are between abstraction and figuration.I feel so closed to Paul Klee way of thinking and his metaphor of “the Equilibrist”.
I have the need of drawing everyday.To take notes from reality. Drawings and lines are always present in my artwork, I use them to capture the internal architecture of the things.
I base my work on the experiences I lived and places I had been . I focus attention on details wich can tell the whole history. Everyday life is like to go fishing and each image that I catch from reality is a fish. After I take all that and I place and determine it on the canvas in a pictorial way and I start a process in wich I do the painting undoing it. Then I work fast.Time is important. Painting must have temporary breath.”
