“What I try to do when I paint is to rewrite my life; I try to place myself as a witness of the situations and the events I experience. That’s why there are no boundaries between political matters and private stories in my work. My life has been up till now a series of displacements. Of course this has so much to do with certain historical and social facts. But when painting displacement becomes a matter of exploring the state of Wait, Absence, Halt and Deferral, I wonder if I can still talk about the particularity of the bodies I paint by relating them to some local conditions or to any specific dates.”
