“I have always been interested in the depiction of space and atmosphere, in how we interact with our environment, with the most direct of our surroundings: the air around us, which we breathe and touch without knowing it. My search is to make tangible the intangible.
This need to represent infinity has likely had a big impact on my way of painting. I work with overlapping layers, transparency, adding different shades to create a new set of tonalities and find textures that turn this space, this infinity, in something that we can almost touch and feel.
I do not seek to represent a particular and recognizable landscape, I want to create a dialogue with the viewer and his memory, and I believe that our memory uses all of our senses”.
