I have always been attracted to the glossy surface of pop culture imagery while being strongly aware of its vanity and the complexity of the human reality lying underneath.|
My work emphasizes this dichotomy by mixing pop and naturalistic ingredients, thus creating a playful yet unsettling atmosphere.
I like to focus on the psyche of my subjects, who appear tensed in a surrealistic setting, visibly suffering from a sweet alteration. They are both exposed and impenetrable, while my obsession with textures makes their rendering shift from the plastic to the organic.
Recently I have privileged the use of mixed media so as to obtain an adequacy between form and content by the coexistence of sharp pen lines and opaque colorful zones that highlight the discrepancy between surface and depth.
