"Actually my approach is rooted in a world of smells, invisible songs, those of birds, wind, sea, women's murmurs.
It is suspended in an intimate landscape as one that is in front of my house this multitude of discrete fragments that tell me so many things ... so many secret things, unexpected, silent. Often the characters spend there, marvel, wonder, listen.
I do not represent. I let go that foster world walk in my blood, this assembly of flashes that make up my life, and that will come in turn articulate this strange and complex area which is the canvas or paper.
I never thought that painting was the representation of some reality. My Masters have always blown me in the palm of my hands. So I am working to slow this painting, repeating gestures long dates, alone, already constitute the brilliance of my canvas, this well enough sparkle yet but will sense and discretion, when the paint soon forget habits when it has filtered and digested heavy and unnecessary questions.
Painting without fixed ideas.
Being receptive to surprise. I never added. Painting is a subtraction story ... remove is not removed. "Put just enough", this is my stress, I who painted transparency, layer upon layer so that surprises are my astonishment and pleasure.
My paintings are "notes" as so aptly Pablo, notes that query and excite unique moments. "
