My painting is at first an exploration, looking for who I really am as an artist. My way of thinking, what touches me. My passion is portrait, the face as a mirror of the inner emotion and human condition.
Passionate about nature; I'm always aiming to capture the human being as a fragile animal in an increasingly precarious environment.
My latest creations are the result of a three-dimensional search. I use butterflies in my paintings as a metaphor for life's fragility. Butterflies symbolize the lightness of being, the metamorphosis, the death and/or rebirth ...
I am sometimes inspired by famous paintings that I treat in a more contemporary way, as a kind of a quest in continuity with the old masters. In search of a balance between beauty and chaos, I mix styles, realism blending in abstract expressionism. I work oil in layers of bright colors on deep backgrounds in a spontaneous gesture trying to preserve the freshness and energy of the first sketches.
