Description of my work
In my work I look for elements of colour and light that provide a feeling of stillness, capturing a brief moment so that it can become eternal when it is watched.
The background for each painting is made with a layer of fibreglass pulp and acrylic Gesso, combed and painted from multiple directions. The technical construction of the paintings through the application of these textures in the canvas allows an energetic brushwork reminiscent of the classical impressionist painters.
Touches of golden hues are mixed with oranges and light yellows in the main shapes so that they stand out against the background of cool blues, pale violet and soft green-blues.
Art is a way of communication and it is the artist’s responsibility to enhance the development of the spirit of people who watch its paintings through a work which allows positive emotions to arise after viewing the paintings. This is my humble aim.
