I explore connections in things, words, spirituality. I think there are subtle but strong links behind what we see and that’s the building ground of the world that we live in. This could be true in an existential as well as in a pragmatic manner: the inside and the outside are always connected, always interdependent, that’s what we experience everyday when witnessing how our thoughts and reactions open the path for the next moment, both in positives or negative ways. Simply put, our reaction to life creates our life.
The ocean in front of the city I live in influences my dreams and my art. Thoughts and books, phrases gathered casually in the streets are still swinging in my mind when I go back to the studio. Something I’m working on now might the concretization of an idea I had five years ago, consciously or otherwise.
I believe that everything is triggered by connections. I find them so fascinating that I’m always thinking about them, in every subject that I paint: abstraction, nature or human figure (in my almost abstract way). When I’m working at one of my Kisses paintings, I’m trying to capture the connection between two souls.
