Artist's Statement

The silence is the crack, and I am soothed by the cracks all around me, by that [negative] space, the glitch, the error, the page-not-found, the nothingness, the black. That is what I paint: these seemingly accidental sounds, spaces, moments…

Combining minimalism and punk attitude, the idea is to remix unmatchable elements, slash boundaries and create tension between opposites: a 21st century hybrid mashup. A sort of “post-postmodern, post-punk, post-rave, post-medium, post-apocalyptic, post-existential Zen meditation”, at times deceptively sardonic, cynical and nihilistic. If painting is once again, really and truly dead, then I am producing its willful zombies...
