When I paint, having obtained the right attitude and inspiration on the right moment, the act of painting converts in a state of being .
As my thoughts are mostly multi-thoughts and as my feelings are multi-feelings, I allow my visions being changeable and flexible. So as well is my artistic work.
My inspirations are the very present in all its aspects. The interaction with the materials. The pigments, oil, the smells, the feelings, the steps of time, the thoughts, the fears, joy and love. The location is the universe, the studio, the table , the wall , whatever..
Obviously in an inconscient way, my work has been inspired as well by the old masters of the last centuries, by renowned artists I could meet in person. By the plenty of emerging and more recognized artists I am meeting with frequency and above all by the small things of everyday life.
Often my work is not finished but the representation of a certain moment of being that has a past and always an uncertain future. It is an archived sign of being that can be shared at any time and often get new meanings in function of the interpreter. Sometimes I even finish works I made many year ago.
I consider an artwork as a kind of frame for the perception with enough compositions of visual ingredients, that provokes experiences in other people and for all in a different way.
I live my work as a journey and my way of working as a steering wheel through an uncertain world full of surprises and discoveries.
