Painter

I have always been a painter. But it is only after a career in communication that I decided to devote myself fully to the creation of paintings in mixed techniques in 2002. I am inspired by events and current events as well as by my daily life. I take photographs of my surroundings, the genesis of my pictorial work, and then transpose my pictures onto canvas. I pay particular attention to the material and combine different materials, pigments, cardboard, ashes, or even plants, to give relief to my compositions. Since 2012, it has been quite natural that I turned to photography, a medium that complements paintings. From an element that has been photographed a thousand times, I create a fog in the crucible of my glued materials and my paint, pushing the pure image backward, drawing to the front of the stage what this image contains of mystery. Then, by "inverting" my technique, I made a series of black and white photos, on which I introduced color through pigments, varnishes, and inks. Bridges, trees, or landscapes disappear slightly under the color.

In constant search of new materials and new techniques, I combine all sorts of materials around a theme inspired by my daily life: a subject, an image, a current event. All these materials that we tend to throw away, I try to give them a second life, a second look. By accumulating layers and layers of paint, "accidents" appear. These are the ones that will build the canvas. After this construction around the theme, the colour and the material, I "sculpt" all these elements to give volume and strength.
