oscillating between painting and sculpture.
observation of light, mediums and translating new perspectives linked to chaos.
Going back to a larger scale, gestural and minimal.
Blob is a serie of works exploring the relation of data and Art.
The new era we live in has encouraged us to be more involved in virtual relations, content, and creating our own data, meaning creating our own narrative.
Nevertheless, Blob happens.
what is a blob? well, to make it short A blob is is a collection of binary data stored as a single entity. Blobs are typically images, audio or other multimedia objects, though sometimes binary executable code is stored as a blob. They can exist as persistent values inside some databases or version control system, or exist at runtime as program variables in some programming languages. It is not to be confused with a binary file stored in a file system.
how fascinating it is to look into data as an abstract representation of us or a singular person?
As you may have noticed in my last cycle of painting, i went deep into letters, from minimalism to maximalism.
I work most of the time on a Grid, playing with latin and hebrew alphabet to combine and create unique expression that can be interpreted has a translation.
Language, for many reasons have been inspiring me and encouraging to decompose and create new abstract or less representation in my work.
the world we live in today has encouraged us to be more talkative and share anything/everything in different media and hope to reach someone.
I cannot really relate to that since i blur the lines or mix the words, I prefer to think that everyone can have their own interpretation and translation.
Letters, minimal geometric
letters, symbols, signs have a very strong influence in my painting.
Little by Little i came to reduce the unnecessary "noise" around the expression of it.
Creating forms from combining the glyphs and unite them in one.
some will see a labyrinth, some will recognize Truchet, some will think of some letters than others. it's always in the viewer that a piece of Art takes its full dimension, isn't it?
always interesting to study mythology, history, and mathematics and realize that we are always here to learn a lesson.
I started by Bauhaus drawings and teaching, on the way got lost with Truchet tiles and history, but of coursealso reading about Daedalus achivements and symbolic.
Usually in Labyrinth, you have at least one way in and on way out. The i relaized that all the attention would be focus on these. Therefore, i twisted the idea a little, and composed with Truchet Tiles a new idea.
The journey is the key, not how you started or how you finished.

Movement and restrictions have been two elements important in my practice.
As previously, i came back to the concept of choreography in limited space.
a reflection of shuffling and always coming back to the same point.
most of the time, I trace a grid and compose, add layers, and understand where the rhythm should be.
i wanted to use simple icon language and abstract hem to the point it would create a new eye gymnastic.
sky escape, geometric utopia
On my journey to escape the current chaos, I always look up. The various mysteries related to sky, space, light and how we see it and what we do with this knowledge.
Mission to Mars, or moon explorer still resonate and are an infinite source of inspiration.
The paradox of the global situation is ironic and makes it even more fascinating.
We are all, more or less, on limited movement and travelling. Creating some utopian landscape generated by these observations makes my journey easier.
sky escape, geometric utopia, golden hour
The escape is determined by the viewer.
Observing the Hubble and seeing the Nebula, the stars and the moons is a relief.
Isn’t is amazing to have this vision and see the light from here.
We need darkness to see the light. I translated this concept into a shape, a new mindscape to add to the collection.
Mind the light.
i did a serie of this shape reuniting different light studies, and observations, proposing a spectrum of moments and escape.
in my process, i always combine colors, shapes and illusion.
Sometimes I investigate on the typography and symbolism.
In this work, i combined few symbols and letters, collected in the last cycle, as a new language to add to my painting vocabulary.
it starts with writing and sketching, and slowly blurring the lines and evidences of clear lecture of the situation.
many skies ago,
After two years of shuffling inside and out, physically and mentally, this shape became my symbol.
As if every time I was looking up and wondering for some enlightenment to explain the situation.
the many restrictions that surround us during this era allowed me to think of colors as a mindscape, a little
parenthesis, a dystopian universe that makes me feel home and grounded no matter what is happening around me.
