Painting - Acrylic Painting
In my work I try to extrapolate every day objects from their real contest.
I want to visualize the power of shape and colour that I meet in the simplicity of objects.
Recently I'm trying to use the strenght of language and phonetics. With words sound I would like to exceed the language limits (every country has its own) just like painting can do.
I don't make any difference between realism and astractism, my work is just a changing of place between real and oneiric. I don't think that exists right or wrong colour, correct or uncorrect place. I want to make some cages that link two different realities, ways, that are not usually connected.
I always hope to create clean, not poor, situations.
