"Painting is a source of rebirth and intellectual awakening that opens up a complete language of free expression and thought."

Always looking for the vibrancy and variation of light and color in my monochromes, I work with palette and squeegees. My preferred colors are red, black and white.

Tones are posed as a flat tint, liberating the translucidity and vibrancy of the colors and contributing to the expression of tension in the painting due to the force of attraction between them.

The numerous layers of paint are superposed "wet-on-wet" which then interact chromatically. This allows the material to speak with its relief and serves to modulate the colors whose subtle nuances have a functional role.

It is the result of an intuition and a spontaneity, foreseeable but not always predetermined, beause my hand never says its last word regarding the calculated opposition of colors.
