“For me, painting serves as a platform to investigate ideas about the relationships between abstraction and figuration, the poetic and the mundane, the hidden and the visible, or the solid and the empty.
Whether in the open mouth of a grocery bag or in a succession of papers behind other torn papers, my images, staying on a blurred plane, intermediate between these relationships, are an invitation to an inner world, they record the passage of a space to another and the veil that divides them."
