STATEMENT
//
Images are fixed on the retina; they are stuck in my mind as if they were folders; the memory of a specific scene leads me to seek it. Then I start working based on this image and this way the scene has a new stage: Drawing, video or performance.
The development of these pieces over several years has converged into the challenge of creating my own scenes, filming what I imagine and starting the procedures anew but in reverse.
Apart from the medium: drawing, video or performance, the driving force is, mostly, cinema: suspense, film noir. drama, comedy.
Grabbing the stills or impersonates a cinema icon involves a trip to the very inside of the scenes and the back of the camera.
