You are the first artist, I am interviewing, who so often extends compositions to diptychs, triptychs or even quadriptychs. Can you tell me more about your approach to composition?
Wow! This question is a little complex to answer because it involves a certain personal philosophy. Many of my works have themes such as time, the universe, parallel universes, etc. I have the idea that in the universe everything is connected. We are all connected and I believe that as in a single atom there is a positive and a negative among so many other particles, in our life there is always this connection, this ambiguity. And why not a repetition? This idea always inspires me to take pictures in sequences, ambiguous or that complete each other.
This idea possesses me.
It seems to me that the most difficult part of such compositions is to make them appear consistent as a whole and to make unique pieces work as independent paintings. What do you really find challenging?
When I create identical pieces to form a set, this is already a challenge. Making them look different is a big challenge. The way they are arranged makes them unique even though they are exactly the same. This actually has a representation of humanity itself. We are all the same and at the same time unique.
In some moments creating different works that connect also has a certain degree of difficulty because when looking at them they must be unique.
When I paint a single work it is also a huge challenge because it must touch the observer and he must wish to enter the work. I believe that nowadays I have managed to make many of my buyers really enter the work or at least feel this need.
You said, “I like to paint the energy” and you can feel it in your paintings. Where do you get your energy from?
I believe that everything is energy. I feel that energy in everything. Even a simple object has the ability to have that energy. My paintings are made as a ritual full of dedication, music, affection and joy. They are not an escape or a “therapy” they are energy created and transformed into colors in form. My energy comes from everything I believe in, everything I love, everything I dream, everything I dedicate myself to.
