Artist Statement

My oil paintings are neither abstract nor figurative, but something in between. My entire process happens on the final surface and begins with no premeditated subject or composition.

I’m interested in contrasts such as the natural-artificial and reality-fantasy realms, as well as the concepts of wonder and metamorphosis. The multiplicity of emotions and interpretations that the same painting can carry is something that interests me, that is why I work from, and towards subjectivity and openness.

In my oil paintings I combine empirical and non conventional ways of using the medium and also, classical techniques and color palettes. My work doesn't represent reality, even though I could only generate absurd, fantastic or poetic images by using and combining parts of it.
