Statement

As a painter, I am a player who plays with colors and graphic shapes to tell a story, most of the time my story.

Color is the main subject in my paintings. I let bold colors interact with each other,

also hide details, combine unexpected hues, and work with strong contrasts creating ,

apparently, simple paintings.

The graphic shapes in my paintings limit fields and situations, framing the story

I’m telling.

When I start a work, I have a general idea about composition, colors and forms to use to construct the story I am going to tell. But during the process of developing this story, the painting gains its own life, interacting with me, and often showing me directions I haven’t cogitated before.

The work is done when I feel that the emotional connection/dialogue exiting between the painting and myself can now start happening between my painting and the viewer.
