"My painting is the transformation of the photographic image on the surface of the picture. The face is a type of laboratory where I build and destroy the identity of the subject. I want to discover the portrait using the modern gesture of traditional painting. I want to show the human body and its fragile image. I feel the urge to eliminate, is the need to erase the essence of the individual in the picture surface. Through my work I want to reflect on the passage of time and the portrait of the current era."
