The works in this series depict abstract landscapes through a restricted color palette, while maintaining a certain dynamism in the composition and choice of tones, ranging from decidedly bright colors to pastels.
They are my homage to the beauty of our planet, which I have been fortunate enough to be able to admire in my many travels to various parts of the world. The paintings are inspired by real experiences that have left a mark on my subconscious mind, or by imaginary scenes drawn from imagination.
To further emphasize the connection with the Earth, I have made extensive use of various natural materials such as stone and metal dust, paper, cardboard, bitumen and plaster. These paintings invite visitors to use their curiosity and let the work resonate with personal lived experiences.

The series Amo la vita celebrates my deep admiration and love for all forms in which life expresses itself: being those persons, animals, objects, or nature. I love life in its disarming contradictions, moments of shadow and moments of light, flashes of exuberant joy and deepest despair. Life expresses itself through a movement of shapes and colours, like in a dance. Just think of the view from above of a crowd swaying in the streets of a big city, or the movements of hordes of animals in the savannah.
As in everyday reality, life is full of sharp contrasts. Light and dark. So, my painting are filled with patches of light and patches of darkness; elements that create patterns and elements that disrupt the rhythm; moments that are clear and well defined and moments that are fuzzy and confused. I am fascinated by the coexistence of deep contrasts.
