Recent work from my studio.
Landscape “en plein air”
Selected work from 2014 solo show.
“It’s another way to paint: out of the comfort of a warm studio you are in front of the fragility of yourself, exposed to the elements: you are in the game.
Then you realize that what is in front of you is so immense and elusive: you have to be simple and concise; be fast and quick. The colors you use can’t replicate exactly what you observe; you can only give the illusion, and you must use them in order to find strategies and means of expression, trying to get closer to nature, to capture its essence.”
For lights for fruits
Selected works from 2012 solo show. “So, from his emotional approach in the landscapes to his still life paintings, which in their timelessness make a nod to the poignant “chiaroscuro” canvases of the magisterial Jean-Baptiste Chardin (see the two oils on board of 2012: Wine, pears and an unfinished painting and Three oranges and a jar), everything seems to want to draw from nature, in the search for a precise tension between stability, the tempered quality of the pigments, between reflections and sounds.”
