Soft Gears is one of my very first painting when I decided to take a turn with my work, the decision was to make my painting more “me”. So, what happened was, I started painting with my fingers, using different kind of tools, I have reduced the distance, the physical distance I had with the canvas, the paper etc... to make my work more "fleshy". My relationship with the painting has grown more passionate, sensual and less rigid and intellectual than it was before.
The work on paper allows me to do research about techniques, colours, textures; it's the permanent quest for harmony. I create samples of emotions, each paper is a desire... a desire of texture, a desire of light, a desire of colour.... an expressed desire of many ranges of emotions. Often it is also the desire to sublime the blue, a colour that I adore. I like when the shapes of the motifs are organic, natural, soft on the edge, leaking, bubbling, when it has some fluidity.
The work on paper has started in 2015, it has been, and still is my laboratory.
"Soft Gears" is painted with Acrylic paint, on a 224g/m² Lavis Technique Canson Paper, it is signed on the back, and will be delivered with a certificate of authenticity.
