statement

My work in painting represents an abstract-figurative synthesis based on two essential assumptions: The figurative vision of the image on one hand, and its abstract dimension on the other. My painting thus lingers on a binary threshold placed between the appearance of the image and the disappearance of its contours in a defined or undefined geometrical abstraction.
The creative process of my paintings follows the principles of traditional oil painting. The pictorial stratification obtained with the overlay of transparencies and luminous veils wraps the morphological profile of the image which cannot be precisely identified, escaping any possibility to be recognized.
What emerges from the transparencies of the painting is thus the primordial mystery of the images which appear in the evanescent space of the painting just at the point to reveal something, but far from revealing. What really matters is not the revealed thing, but the process of revealing itself. It is the mystery of the revelation what promotes the dialogue between the figurative and abstract dimensions of the image, which instead of going into a conflictual relationship, remain always reciprocally amplifying. The observation process returns thus, once again, to analyze and reaffirm the essential nature of the painting: to be a sensible, perceptive phenomenon.
