Painting, Mixed Media

 “I am absorbed by the complexity of our existence. I try to analyze who we are, what we have been, what we are becoming, considering the environment we live in and transform. I try to develop, through graphic illustration and painting (mixed media), a reflection on the temporality that guides us. I’m working on the transporting potential of the image by creating a dialogue between narration and abstraction.”

Furthermore, this abstraction represents something concrete but deconstructed by the space-time which is fixed. To clarify, unlike narrative language that is discursive, these abstract paintings describe a story / environment without being influenced by the notion of time.
By expressing myself through painting(mixed media), I try to convey a message simply by using dark and bright forms, colors and symbols. The starting point for these paintings is a figurative object that is then deconstructed. Symbols and colors become a description of this initial element that is deconstructed poetically and becomes a reflection of the/my world.
