Rocaille's series of works were originally motivated by formal searches. I wanted to create some modern landscapes that had a clear reference to the classic French landscape from the time of Antoine Watteau. Hence, the name Rocaille is an appeal to the early 18th century and its aesthetics. Most of the works feature, in one way or another, the shape of an oval. In fact, it is a circle, but more aestheticized and refined.
The oval works with a torn canvas body are more conceptual. They talk about the inextricable connection to classical art and about the death of it as a medium in our era.
Other works, where a small oval landscape is depicted against an even blue background, have a more existential content. These works are about the limited capacity of humans to perceive this world, about the fact that the unknown and inconceivable (blue background) does remain outside the boundaries of our perception.
Also, in Rocaille there is a third type of work: simpler landscapes that combine a modern approach to landscape and a reference to the classical tradition of this genre.
