Each painting that I create is a unique dance with a variety of materials, unique to each work. I often refer back to traditional painting methods when priming the surface and preparing the paints. One of my preferred mediums is egg tempera, which i prepare myself from scratch in the same way that the renaissance masters would have done. I always use oils and inks in my work. The quality of these mediums enables me to build up subtle and rich layers, from which my poetic images appear. Each work is always a battle between exposing and suppressing different areas until the perfect balance of colour and form is achieved.
This series of work is inspired by the early Italian Renaissance paintings.
I always admire the beauty that these masterpieces evoke, you can never have enough, doesn’t matter how many times you saw them you will always feel amaze.
The idea is to bring modernity and transform a Renaissance atmosphere into a contemporary image.
We live in a world in constant change, never having a moment for ourselves, never find the time to have some peace and tranquillity.
In this body of work I want it to give the observer some time to reflect, to take a big breath and simply enjoy the moment to see something beautiful.
