Painting

Painting, for me, is exploring life. For many years human nature is my main inspiration. Actually it is life itself and the great possibility we have of creating our lives. Unfortunately the tight circumstances we live in make it often difficult to be and stay aware and to act creatively. Engaging in a creative process is one way to understand how life works in reality, with all the beauty and pain being part of the process.  As a means of expression I am using photography to capture pieces of reality that attract my attention and which are serving as the base of my work.

These ephemeral and accidental moments get enlarged in time through the action of painting and occasionally combined with other slow techniques that demand  additional attention.  It could be seen as an act of celebration.
