Through the Serendipity series, I delved into the exploration of a new material, the resin, deliberately alluding to the experience of novelty and wonder that engulfs us when unexpectedly encountering something beautiful. This sentiment parallels the exhilaration felt by scientists when a sudden revelation unveils a new discovery, evoking memories of my own years spent at CERN. Such serendipitous revelations also manifest when one engages with pioneering techniques for the first time.

A distinctive 'liquid' essence permeates these pieces, stemming from my profound affinity for water and the natural world. The graceful undulations within the artworks serve as a poignant reflection of the Earth's breathtaking beauty, urging us to cherish and safeguard our planet. Central to my artistic narrative is the stark reality of pervasive air, land, and water pollution, a theme that demands attention. I firmly believe that each individual must play an active role in preserving the Earth, not only to enhance our own well-being but, crucially, that of generations to come.

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 artworks in the Floating Forms series are mostly inspired by memories of people and places encountered in my many travels and moves around the world.  They evoke familiar objects and subjects, but in an abstract, almost dreamlike representation.

These large paintings draw one in from a distance because of the contrasting masses. Moving closer, one is invited to discover a multitude of shapes and details that stimulate curiosity and foster emotions.

Most feature an earthy palette of neutrals, shades of blue and rust obtained from metal and stone powders. Others are inspired by colors and
seasonal shades.

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.
