" The essence of a face, it is safe to stand in front of us. This, too, to make face-
to-face relationships -  look. There is no need to see  faces clearly, a
physiognomy, lines, to one side we look so that the distance affects us and it
affects us. It is enough that we pay to what we faced the power to make us a look,
the power to levy eyes on us. "

I worked on a series of paintings inspired by
contemporary dance having been immersed in
that environment throughout my childhood, my
mother being a choreographer. I have
absorbed many of these images as a child and
being able to recapture them by painting them
allows me to externalize them.The relationship
between the fixed image and movement really
interests me. To captivate the eye by
transforming the clear into a blur and the fixed
into a movement is an active ingredient in my
research. I paint in a very instinctive way,
following the example of the expressionists who
fascinate me (Francis Bacon, Paul Rebeyrolle,
Jenny Saville, Vladimir Velickovic, Cecily
Brown). Through the colours, brush strokes,
composition, background and rhythm of the
painting, I attempt to create works which truly
represent bodies in movement without
distortion. Without having a clear idea of the
final result, I stop my work before it seems
finished. The moment where little is enough to
suggest the stucture interests me, leaving the
spectator's imagination open at the moment the
scene is starting to appear. Knowing when to
stop before saying too much is what I tried to
do.
