"I am attracted a lot by astronomical images that I see in the newspaper and I always have them in mind when I am working on my paintings. Quite recently, I placed the human figure in the sky without representing it entirely. It’s always a fragment of a face, a single arm or a hand, as I want to paint like things happen in a dream without a logic link, pieces of different scenarios happening all at the same time without a chronological order. I would say that I am influenced by the digital: the impossibility of focusing the attention on just one image because a second later, I am attracted by a new image that I want to paint."
