“My work is tangentially connected to the idea of landscape as a psychological space where the relationship between human perception and the landscape consists of complex ties but also of fine nuances.
I am deeply interested in the edge of perception where abstract and figurative inform each other, evoking a spatial and pictorial ambiguity, a tension of simultaneous presence and absence. Throughout the painting process, I balance and play with gestural traces and atmospheres of various spaces, experienced and imagined, which merge with fragments of sensory memories.
The contradictory experience of spatial fluidity, an indoors-outdoors duality, stillness and shifting locations are ideas which fascinate me as I create. I want my work to invoke this and to engage the spectator in this simultaneous action, one in which paint can be seen both for its intrinsic properties and for its ability to imply fictive spaces. The dialogue oscillates back and forth between evocation and abstract traces that are open for interpretation. For me, painting becomes a way of existence, both as an activity and an object.”
