My artworks are the result of a struggle between fictional portraits and the physicality of the paint. I'm not interested in feigning the reality, using "tricks" like perspective. It is the reality of the painting itself as a bi-dimensional object that I am interested in.
Colour, texture, gesture are fundamental elements in my work. I mainly use thick oil paint to express my mark making.
