Artist statement

Reality itself suggests great esthetic and imaginative possibilities which I try to capture. I approach it to analyze a series of perceptions which I am trying to express to propose another reality.

“Suggested reality” shows in a few words what I am trying to describe. One of my favorite topics is urban landscapes, details in large cities through a palette of colors, lights, shadows and sometimes natural elements like rain, snow, fog, etc. All of them are ingredients helping me to better determine a fictitious reality. I like to tone down colors, I try to avoid too sharp contrast in images.

When I paint a portrait whether it is for a celebrity or for non-famous person, I always try to capture the expression in his/her eyes which for me is the foundation of a portrait. Composition plays an important role too. I like to use just black and white and, sometimes, a touch of color but without interfering with the final composition.
