statement

My work is a reaction to the world that surrounds me. Every aspect of my interaction with the day-to-day reality works as stimulus for my creation. The mix of colors, textures, sounds, movements, people, etc that I encounter in my everyday activity act like punches or caresses  in my mind and I constantly feel the need to translate them into paintings or animations.

My working process in the paintings is based on automatism and the use of subconsciousness. I try not to have any preconception when facing an empty canvas. I think about the act of painting as a sort of ritual or trance based on sensations and feelings. I use to work in different paintings at the same time to develop a workflow lead by adrenaline and intense energy where randomness and improvisation are two key elements.

In my videos I aim at creating lively narratives always playing with double meaning and humor and offering an earthly and sarcastic vision.

The results of my work are a mixture of dramatic encounters, where the human element is a constant presence although not always explicitly. I assume my work as a form of self- knowledge and as a tool to understand what surrounds me. Informalism and expressionism inform my practice.
