About

 

"What I look for with my painting is to understand how we are, how we behave, and ultimately portrait it. I feel that for grasping the truth I need to explore intimacy, the intimate communication between human beings. Freed from the fake manners imposed by social composure, there’s always some exposure that we can’t avoid: Complicity, seduction, joy, fear, melancholy, perversion, brutality… it’s all in the same mix of our human condition. I am interested in the physical part of it, because we are animals made of blood, flesh and bone; but even more interested in the psychological part of it, in the myriad of different looks that we give to one another at this level. They speak the truth, and that is what I seek to paint."
