My work is axed around two different yet complementary practices that feed and enrich each other: installation and painting.
The pictorial practice allows me to browse and probe emotions, to favour the gesture, the deployment of energy and vital surges that animate me.
Born in an artistic family, I studied Applied Arts in London, where I lived for many years. My training led me to work on materials, textures and colours, to build a reflection around the notion of Imprint and Trace and to explore their underlying questions: time, body, and memory.
For those two last years I have been exploring a path where the quest for the essence of painting passes through a purified gesture and a minimal pictorial language. There is a need to go to the essential and to centre on the Here and Now, to capture a light, a feeling, a moment.
I work on a white surface, usually leaving the background pure, happily playing with the texture that interacts with the paint, with its dilution, exploiting its transparency effects, or its pigment accumulations.
I try to emphasize the fluidity of the material, and look in the gesture for a balance between tension and slackening, concentration and spontaneity, in order to reach the equilibrium of the composition.
The result is centred on the page, floating in a white space, feeling like a calligraphic sign. The superimposition of its elements and the contrast between the density effects on its edges and the transparency at the centre give a sculptural dimension to the composition, the illusion of volumes floating in space.
The elements are usually connected with one another, thus creating several layers and a depth that tells as much about space as about time.
In their formal simplicity, these art works confront the viewer with his own emotional expressiveness, and invite him into a spiritual journey.
