My work invites the viewer to witness sexual or erotic situations that might commonly are excluded or distanced themes due to certain ‘modesty’ ideas that often become “taboos”. I try to place the viewer in the position of those who, without fear, note the intimacy of “other” from a lustful, lecherous gaze, an intimacy that is revealed uninhibited packed full of pleasure and ecstasy.
This content works best for me in the flat format: it channels my thoughts using the resources of painting and Fauvism, especially the use of a garish color range, with both contrasts strong and complementary, where the intensity of the shades is core. So Eros is expressed at ease, with a palette that tries to be seductive. In addition, I use the texture and thick impasto of material often tempting for the sensory experience of the tactile.
