About my artwork
Incognito portraits in an absent environment...
All reactions erased, facial expressions cancelled; in a mix of calm and chaos the marks of a life history are suppressed within these faces. Without pretending anymore, without revealing anything more it remains only a silent suggestion in a structure, a pose or attitude.
Sometimes, within this blurred perception arises a feeling of proximity and recognition.
All the main elements that create individuality are replaced by new registers to be applied in a new representation. They are engraved vectors in the skin as if tattooed, delineated in such a subtlety and graciousness that reinvents and poetically contaminates each personality.
Identities are thus removed from these characters and represented with new masks executed as adornments in an intervention that categorizes each individual, each face as a creative support.
The result produces a conflicting sensation of queerness with a touch of charm, conferring to the portrait a new dimension.
