ARTIST STATEMENT: My work celebrates the human spirit and life on our planet in all its forms.
My preference for bright, vivid colors is rooted in my youth spent in the Mediterranean sun. Cartoons, street art, medieval bestiaries and animal fables are also a continuous source of inspiration.
My paintings are animated with line drawings, symbols, collage, animal and human forms. These forms are surrounded by abstract landscapes, sometimes evocative of the sea or the countryside.
I use minimal, simple shapes. My painting style is gestural, spontaneous and expressionist.
The result is a mix of abstract and figurative elements colored with a touch of humor. Each character is participant in a story and the title of the piece is a clue as to the narrative.
