“Rhythms and colors of the soul, intensity and freedom expressed by action painting. Challenging the unexpected, letting the paint drip after a brushstroke allowing gravity, feelings and improvisation, to be part of the music in colors. The energy that transmits the vibration of the cords of an instrument, the one between colors, resembles the vibration among us in the spiritual and physical space. I seek to be “present”, to concentrate on the not pre-determined variables, applying the work, technic and experience, to achieve the balance and integrity of the work. Art is infinite, it changes, creating new colors, forms and movements. Music is a constant theme in my life and as a consequence in my paintings. My intention is to express the way I live art and paint life.”
