Art is an impetuous channel of expression and I feel immense joy when an observer is captivated by one of my paintings, because a picture is not just a group of colours, but the result of work performed with the heart and energy…… Nature has always been my sole source of interest and curiosity, colours are my second skin, food for my mind, a means of communicating with my soul, a reflection of my emotions. Each piece of work reflects my mood, when I am peaceful I mainly use warm shades from greens, to yellows and orange, then when my feelings change comes the period of blues, reds, greys, golds and silver…… The Aboriginal dots and writings of the world…… Inspired by Australian Aboriginal rock art, I have made this ancient language my own, offering a new interpretation of it in my work, in which it acts as a link between the human and animal world: the subjects of my paintings observe us and communicate with us, with their explosive power and beauty and I am only the “trait d’union” between their world and ours. These are the means with which I build secret castles of the enigma of my soul, the closely guarded, hidden part, which will only be revealed to an attentive interpreter.The others, who I depict in my paintings, go in silence, without a sound, forever, in the indifference of mankind, the main promoter of this ecocide.
