Current Work Practice

 

I am interested in the notion of using methodological experimentation within an image in order to abstract and play with the visible and invisible through obstruction.

Using different techniques of creating, presenting and execution, I intend to question the conventional medium and explore the notion and role of post-photography representation.

 

The dialectical game between figurative and abstraction through obstructive, ambiguous compositions is creating something unknown and triggering an intentional expanded cognitive process of concealment and revelation.

 

Play with the media, obstruct and abstract. Lay the gaze down and let the images and their contradictions, their dialectics and their “appearance” help to see the invisible.

Forget boundaries and let the intuition guide you, compose, de-construct and construct. Be creative without loosing the “photographic thinking”.

 

 [the artist] gives something for the eye to feed on, but he invites the person to whom this picture is presented to lay down his gaze there as one lays down one's weapons. (Lacan)
