I feel the blood pumping through my veins, injecting electricity into my muscles. I close my eyes, letting my soul dictate the coordinates to move to the rhythm of my accelerating heart. I breathe my own music tasting the saltiness emerging from my skin. I am fulfilled with energy. I am strong, free and full with life, as I dance forever.
Having so much passion for arts and sports, I have always been fascinated by the inner feeling that provokes in me. It gives my being power to accomplish.
Ultimately I want to explore my devotion to human figure, it’s complexity and never ending study, through one of its more an spontaneous, motion in dance, and its purity to transmit emotions. Water reflections influence my paintings and I am always in adventure to find ways to disarrange the limbs to evoke it.
My heart dances now within the excitement of my studio, I feel the painting flowing through the tubes, impregnating with dynamism into the blank canvas. I close my mind and let gravity dictate its way. I open my emotions, as when my body is to music, and under my dancing brush solid colors turn liquid, following the course of the background to create a continue liquid motion in the figure. Each painting its own experiment in flow, rhythm and movement. I am strong, free and full with life, as I am painting endlessly.
