I explore thought through color. I am interested in human thought and how it modifies its body throughout its existence. I believe that thought is constantly evolving, which is why my idea of thought is also changing. The human being accumulates thought, in the same way that I add layers of color on paper.
My work is about the color and how it behaves on the surface. I find inspiration in the color itself and in the landscape that surrounds me. I extract color palettes from what my eyes see and believe that color has all the power to convey what we want.
I paint intuitively until I find the connection with the surface. That moment is key to start shaping the work. The titles are thoughts that I have had at some point when I paint. That is why my work deals with thought because I turn mine onto the canvas.
I paint because words are not enough to express myself, and it is the way to connect with the outside world.
