I paint intuitively, as a response to the environment I live in, from the perspective that I am inseparable from the environment. There are many similarities, both philosophical and material, between by painting practice and that of dance. I’m mainly interested in the painting process due to the movement inherent in it. My paintings are the traces, or imprints of my actions. For me, the process is the outcome, when immersed in it I find a sense of equilibrium with what is.
