our planet.

I began developing the series "Our World" in early 2022 following a workshop with Austrian artist Angelika Domenig having "landscape" as its theme. The course was set on a fairly traditional view of landscape painting, which I needed to overcome by finding a somewhat personal way of reinterpreting the landscape, in a manner more suited to me.

 

The works in this series depict abstract landscapes through a restricted colour palette, while maintaining a certain dynamism in the composition and in the choice of tones, which are ranging from decidedly bright colours 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.   Paintings are inspired by real experiences that have made an impression in my subconscious mind, or on imaginary scenes from imagination.

To further emphasize the connection with our Earth, I have made extensive use of various natural materials such as stone and metal dust, paper, cardboard, bitumen, and chalks. These paintings invite visitors to use their curiosity and let the work resonate with personal lived experiences.

The paintings do not have a fixed and precise orientation, but can be turned in all directions, resulting each time in a very different sensorial experience.
