… “KNOWN-UNKNOWN” PORTRAITS
My paintings work on the principle of a “free-original” minimalist framing, which retains its spatial autonomy.
Everything is contained in a single space divided arbitrarily into two. I deactivate the portrait’s traditional emotional drivers. Shapes, a strong directing line in the space, a double language that we can imagine when we leave “what we know”.
At the edges of abstraction (boundaries of time) set in a climate of serenity. A reality that lies beyond the visible. The invisible is the other side of the visible; it is always there. The invisible hides the visible – the unknown hides the known.
The material obtained lets me enter worlds, spaces, places that are unique, unknown.
Layer after layer, the colour relationships change; the colours overlay and engulf the shapes so as to resonate with their neighbours “vibrations, oppositions”.
