Color, black and white analogic photography and silkprinting

Bodies.

Headless bodies, hallucinated beings, hybrids.

Invisibles, vanished, myths, traces.

Women, allies, accomplices, lovers.

Decorations in ruins, knots, lacks.

My artistic approach works like an impulse, a desire for metamorphosis, a driving force that allows me to exorcise. Painting thoughts that I cannot translate into words. It mainly revolves around light and its texture, using the body as a tool to create a world full with strangeness.

Observing, capturing, exposing, scanning, silk-screening. Through these rituals, the grain becomes almost physical for me, like skin. A skin tha has sensivity.
