An impulse to record the world is thus only part of what fuels my art activity. My work is the only window that exposes my own environment, taking the spectator to a world enveloped in equilibrium and harmony. The detailing is crucial, to a discerning sartorial scrutiny. I look for shadows and light that make geometric and structural shapes. Parallel spaces, contrast, abstraction, lines and superimposing, are essentials characteristics of my work. These characteristics come together in a process that is all but spontaneous.
The color co-stars in my work, without it there is nothing. While it combines and accompanies the photography, it fights for its placement in the surrounding space. Color, its gradient and hues aids in being a highly vibrant composition.
I like the spectator to encounter a very active single work created to highlight the different dimensions and move the viewer into its own space, using photography as a means of social expression, and the chromatic spectrum, a good marriage to build a new formal dialogue.
