About my artwork
We live in times in which we have simply forgotten how to pause and observe anymore , everything boils down to the moment, quick impressions, like we’re shooting through life, and that makes me sad. I am interested in something totally different: to summarise lots of moments on canvas or paper, duration, therefore classical, timeless beauty.
