As an artist, a dancer and a psychologist I explore movements. Body movements, emotional movements, visual movements; those of my own and the other’s, and the movements of relationships.
I take particular interest in places that seek no words, that shy away from words; I the internal movement which seeks to be expressed in desire and raw creativity, which asks to find wordless ways to express its essence. Dancing itself; painting itself.
My work externalises tensions between inside and outside, me and that which is not me, between the seen and the invisible to the eye.
Here, the canvas as an external skin. I approach it, beginning something only to abandon it; meeting a desire and have no choice but coming back, going in, making a few paint strokes and go out again. Sometimes I abuse it, ruptures and repairs, wounding and healing. The works are uninterested in receiving names, they’ve had enough of them. Hence, they are nameless.
So there is an emotional process taking place, receiving a life of its own. Sometimes is stops and when the process is completed the painting becomes a thing, the abstract into a portrait of a moment in my internal world.
