“As the thunderbolt of love shatters stereotypes, inspiration awakens the senses and the memory of another dimension.” n.m.
My challenge is to make the gesture abstract. There is a great debate between automatism and awareness of intent. Is there not a contradiction between wanting a free spirit and committing violence to liberate it?
Inspiration takes root from the dizziness of abandonment to sleep. Ideas are grouped, classified or driven away. Like a wanderer, waiting for rest. Resorting to forms familiar to me, their symbolism transcends the work. Traces of writing, of graffiti, applied in black ink, echo the writings that one speaks to oneself. And of course, the intention to make the brush stroke accidental.
Through my practice I explore the intersection between the use of figurative forms in an abstract representation of language that remains silent and the extravagance of the body that relentlessly speaks. For me painting is more than just a visual experience. It aspires to the global experience and appeals to all senses. The sense of hearing is more problematic because painting is silent in itself. My personal experience leads me to want to make noise in painting, to challenge the limits of painting by painting. I aspire, by the theatricality of my art, to make visible the audible. The disturbing loneliness of the unheard message impels me to counter isolation and overcome oppression with authentic vitality and without concessions. Art calls the question and I continue my questioning.
