"My work has always been more concept than style based, which allows me to freely choose the media and visual language that better fits the needs of each project, confident that every artwork always bears the imprint of its creator, in different ways. When painting I use to over-pose images and symbols on Abstract Expressionist backgrounds -“on the surface, an intelligible lie; underneath, the unintelligible truth showing through”, as Milan Kundera wrote in Immortality. Last year, however, I decided to dive into my work's backgrounds in order to explore in depth its “unintelligible truth” part, fully centering my energy on how to create good Abstract paintings while allowing my hand to have fun, within the gestural and lyrical post-war tradition "
