The creation for this new series of figurative paintings is based on the human figure and its surroundings, in addition to other works. The figures are anonymous beings; they’re especially male characters who display unique characteristics - mainly filled with erotic traits - and found in peculiar situations. Most of all the paintings evoke photographs that I’ve taken randomly; those are of curious sceneries and re-enacted in my artworks, using vivid colours and in an established form of expression that sometimes changes the original scene while adding new elements to its re composition.
This new series is part of a specific body of work inspired by my constant search and find of curious situations. The idiosyncrasies I witness tend to remind me of my own liking for the amusing; therefore I want to take this concept further on canvas.
Similarly to my previous series, my interest is to create scenarios where different elements merge visibly - human figures, the city, nature and (inner/outer) space. With these paintings I want the elements to interact with each other, with their lights and shadows; I want them to fulfil their secret needs, to reveal their nature and their natural impulse. That’s what my creative exploration in these works is about: I want to capture the surreal world behind the real world.
