"I see my paintings as an ambiguous game that moves between the figurative and the abstraction".
These aerial perspective paintings can be said to encourage a dialogue between the pictorial sublime and the physical relationship between the viewerÂ´s image and their experience of an imaginary urban area, from global macrocosm to the microcosm of its inhabitantsâ€™ perspective. These imaginary cities do not simply seek to revisit the urban past or our relationship with it, but to invade and reinvent it closely through its history and geographic design's patterns.
My paintings show colour relations and imaginative structures, within one varying composition. I placed pure colours next to each other with mesmerizing effect. I see my paintings as an ambiguous game that moves between the figurative and the abstraction. I have no intention whatsoever to imitate what I see. Iâ€™d like to think that I am exploring how artificial and arbitrary "The Sublime" can be, when reconstituted in the context of the studio, by using an imaginatively elevated perspective (aerial view).
Originally I was trained in the realistic style. My recent work is less figurative, and focuses more in the abstraction. However, it makes it even more personal, strengthens the sense of â€˜touchâ€™ through the physical presence by incorporating unusual textures on the surface of the canvas. It is important to me that this dialogue between: Touching - Feeling - Reality - Illusion, validates and delivers authenticity and truth to my paintings . . . if truth can be achieved.
