Painting is the way I express myself, the way I communicate my personal view of both the world and life. It is not a hobby: it is something essential, visceral, which Rilke –the poet- called "a need."
Furthermore, it is a way to defeat time and death, a way to perpetuate my dreams.
I love different painting styles: the Surrealists like René Magritte (aesthetically sublime) or Marc Chagall (sheer poetry).
I am also touched by some abstract painting. For instance, Jackson Pollock's "drip and splash" style moves me, and in its apparent secrecy I find an extremely poetic language for my soul.
I like detail, texture, materials, ensembles; those paintings which become poetry.
Since 2000, I have been working on “Magical paintings” series, opening up to fantasy and imagination. I plunge into new textures and colors.
I try to express certain image ambiguity. I experience the pleasure of fun and magic.
It is a poetic stage which leads me to the land of magic and dreams, where real and unreal things become blurred…
I feel that I still have a lot to say and other languages to experience. My game must go on. I envy those “old elves” with long lives like Picasso or Miró who created over so many years everything they wanted and imagined. What a wonderful freedom! They experienced even the pleasure of rolling over the canvas impregnated with color! If only I could do so!!!! I hope I will have the strength to dare at least a little bit…
