After many years of figurative-expressionist painting, recently and randomly I found myself cleaning my painting palette
where many paint layers accumulated during 3 years. At first it was a careless action, which slowly became a revelation.
The fragments of dry paint created during the peeling, which form part of the previous works, suddenly felt “right” to turn
them into the raw material for new ones. An old painting became a source and inspiration for creating a new painting
and so on!
Beyond the re-using of materials that match my ecological point of views, on a personal level, those pieces became a
metaphor of my present life. They represent my need to get inside my soul to explore my artistic nature and rediscover
the roots of my creativity.
The new body of works evolved to be a combination of bold color elements and landscapes along with figures made
out of old paint fragments and sensitive charcoal lines. All together, they express the tension between two sides in my
personality- my inner and my outer world. The first is intuitive and fragile, emotional and introverted. The outer world
is very clear and sharp, full of "South American" temperament and pragmatism.
This duality and it’s expression on canvas, recycled wood or glass is an experience of life and part of my art journey.
