My work is based on pre-verbal images. Through painting, I am able to observe all those inexpressible emotions and feelings, finding meanings in the wordless and silent. Emphasizing simplicity, I am directing my attention to the universal aspect of our doing. Through reduction I feel able to break down to the essential, offering as well to others the possibility to connect with their inner balance through their own associations.

I am referring to life, about the seen and the unseen, about fact and about vision. Constantly, I find myself exploring the possibilities of balance between opposed powers belonging to existence; inhabiting the tension of limits.

The formless, infinite space and the way such spaces evoke immaterial feelings can be naturally expressed through abstraction. The whole universe and our own constitution are built on geometrical structures. Perhaps that is why, in a very intuitive manner, geometry and abstraction have been a very helpful tool for me when talking about all these abstract truths. Geometry transmits a sense of safety and natural order.

Since ancient times, art has been supposed to be a matter of expression. Under this aim, a whole variety of styles and messages began to occur. Where is the truth? Probably, it is in realizing that the fullness of life is composed of eternal opposites.
