My current practice focuses on the exploration of awareness and emotional survival in a context of global violence. My hope with every new piece is to bring often overlooked information into light to spark a conversation on mental health, social issues, global warming or general interrogations I have regarding the ecosystem I live in. This year especially, I got really intrigued by the office world, its very own codes and unwritten rules. My goal in my paintings is to explore the occidental corporate world and its dynamics through an overall energy created by colours combinations and relationships. Also interested by the notion of charisma, I focus on the gestures of the shoulders and hands of my figures as a way to observe with fascination how the idea of power remains the center of attention.
