My art is nourished by the gaze, the contact with the other, the unpredictable connections. As an abstract and figurative artist living in New York, the city is my outdoor source of inspiration. I take cues from individual encounters, the expressiveness of the fashion world and the opera, and the dynamism of fine arts galleries.
Through paintings, I can access and encapsulate my raw feelings. This immersion and materialization of the emotional sphere allows me to evolve as a person. There is little distinction between myself and my work: we define and explore each other mutually. We grow in synergy.
My artistic research is currently focused on the medium of painting. I create abstract paintings, with a precious and impressionistic style, but in which everyone can glimpse a human figure. Staring faces, sinuous bodies, charming details, are mixed with evocative colors and a textured, tangible, paint.
Through the use of colors and textures, I can authentically communicate. Color and texture are critical to my work because they visually demonstrate the illusion of emotion. Color incites a psychological response, strikes the observer on an unconscious and perceptive level. The textured, impasto application brings this sensation to life.
As a human being and as an artist I am constantly in evolution, experimenting and combining new techniques and media.
