Statement

In all the work of the painter discern a faint movement, a breeze... a game with space and time that conduces to virtual expectation and intense sentiments.

Absence becomes intense presence, which unfolds like a shadow in present time.

Shades, deflected by intellectual prisms, fill the distance between man and woman, between real space and the space of the mind.

The painter through the figure continues the investigation on issues of human relations in time.

The mirror - observer of the passaged time – registers and alludes to this passage at the specific eternal moment, where past - present - future coexist.

We find the familiar elements of the painter, the window, the figure, the enigmatic curtain, that waves and functions as landmark between the inside and the outside, visible and invisible, and leads to another dimension of dreamland through a very personal viewpoint.
