WORKS

INTENTION

“ Creating an elsewhere with what we have in front of us... Everything starts from there, from a real landscape made of lights, vibrations, colors, multiple spaces in which I immerse myself to create an "other" landscape which does not reproduce anything, does not interpret anything of what is in front of me, but reveals little by little what penetrates me in an unspeakable way with all the imperfections and the risks that painting requires.

 

In a meditative perspective, I invite the viewer to picture himself into the painting to find his own story and interpret it freely as a personal adventure. ”
