“The model that poses for you is made ​​of flesh and blood, but what must be caught on canvas is its emanation. (…)

You distort what you see, in your own manner, and we can say that the particular mode of distorting things signifies a certain attitude towards life. ” (Francis Bacon)

APOLO ART COLONY – ALBANIA 2013

Silent space

“Sunt un bolovan cenuşiu; nu am alte calităţi

( Alain Bosquet)

Dreaming, hardening the dreams that I choose alone.
