Dominated by a fever of lines, the series of abstract paintings LINES” could be characterized by the very definition given by Michel Seuphor to abstractionism: “A painting should be called abstract when we cannot recognize any of the objective reality which consists our lives normal environment; in other words, a painting is abstract as soon as we are obliged, by the absence of any sensible reality, to consider it as painting in itself, to judge it by virtue of values extrinsic to any representations or any reminders of the representation.”(own translation)

against words who do not help me is greater,as I have no possibility to punish them for their disobedience. Therefore, sometimes, I talk in “lines”

The artwork “Sleeping Circles”is one of my first abstract attempts, the forerunner stage of many future searches into abstractionism. It was born after the return from a residence at Hope University in Liverpool and after visiting London, two cities whose color fervor was a shock to me at that time.

The materials used are acrylic, string and tracing paper, on paper, 70 x 100 cm , 2005.
