"My painting begins with a physical act, where the use of materials resembles an act of loading and unloading. Through the acts of playing and randomness, which include cutting and reassembling the paintings, my hand functions as a seismometer, recording the body’s movements and tensions. These actions allow me to observe the underlying mechanism that constitutes the painting itself.
My technique combines different materials, such as watercolors, soft pastels, whitewash, gouache, and markers, on varying types of paper. The sensuality of working with materials and paint conceals a world of chaos and anxiety, but for me, they are means for creating order and control, doomed to failure in advance.
The world of images ranges from abstract forms to astronomical objects. The images of the moon and suns constitute an anchor cast at the beginning or the end of the painting, and serve as a sort of signature that establishes the existence of the work."
