I am exploring the transient relationship between body and space.
Painting is the starting point of my practice, for I love its repetitive, rhythmical and meditative process, which is at the same time the most genuine spatial dimension of painting. The sensual experience of the making, the phenomenology of the materials and colour transform my work into sculptural projects. This is not static, it is a dynamic process of interaction between body, mind and space.
The materials I am using cover a wide range from oil based, acrylic and enamel paints, found objects, stretched canvas, chopped up and double sided painted canvas and more recently transparent paper.
I am looking for the thinnest line between matter and space to make the gap visible – which is a paradox in itself, but also reflects the game life is.
