My paintings explore the relation between daily life and human nature. I perceive humanity as a chocolate cake, where beneath the ëicedí surface lies those more intriguing and challenging mixtures, with fears and social pathology.

Through the application and process of painting, I cut a piece of that cake to explore the nature of these problems.

Simple yet powerful gestural strokes and mark-making, search and re-investigate solutions to bring these hidden depths to the surface.
