Artist statement

Staying receptive to the history and the cultural interaction is one of my main concern. Getting inspiration from cinema, theatre and old photography helps me to put my perceptions in a figurative representation. I experiment with the alteration of the shape and color using accidents and gesture to express emotional statements or a subtle opinion about contemporary facts. I tried several mediums but somehow I always return to pastel and charcoal as I find them very versatile, easily adapting to my needs of expression.
