Acrylic on transparent film on canvas, 76x38 cm
I call my work: "The Moment of Abstraction". It's a space of emotions where they can be free and even contradictory or confused. Each material that I use contains openings, possibilities, it's fascinating how the painting responds to the means employed. It is concentrated on meeting what I don't know. When I arrive in the workshop, I don't know what will happen, I am use what arises. I particularly like defaults, errors that occur almost without my knowledge, I work without a project and even without any idea or thought.
