Improvisation and freedom, exploring and experimenting possibilities in a spontaneous and fresh way remain the basis of the creative process.
Why the Travel ? What he travel means ?
The travel, so much present theme in the jewelry collection STORIES , it is in fact a process itself. SOLO TRAVEL, a space for a silent internal processing and progressing, elaboration and digestion, while the senses are invested by the beauty of life and the world.
The results in a progress of the human being as well as the creative process.
The 3 weeks and 4.000 km moto travel on the stunning lands of the Pyrenees in Summer 2022 resulted in the process of extraction.
Proceeding along the path of freedom with the porpouse of finding MY WAY of representing the world and with the need of combining drawing and painting, I focused on asking myself HOW.
The PROCESS OF EXTRACTION has been the result of the search to the answer of this question.
The first step of the process is drawing one two three times the same view or a landscape in order to extract the shapes. Tracing Black lines on paper and geometries, rearranging the shapes until losing sometimes the connection to the original reality .
Therefor ABSTRACTION as a RESULT OF THE EXTRACTION .
SHAPES and COLORS are equally important in the composition of a painting.
Colors inspire me in a step by step decision making process until I feel as the painting is finished.

Therefor I finally got to create a few drawing and painting using PROCRATE on my tablet.
Creating a painting in real canvases is a complex experience, a process and a flow in which all your being is projected in the canvas trough the involvement of the senses. This is obviously not happening with the digital support. That’s why digital will never be a substitute for real paintings.
Despite this, I found it somehow more pleasant than expected after all.
The INSPIRATION remain in within myself, as for the other works, in the experiences and drawings , what I see and how I feel. I have created some artworks inspired to the watercolors landscapes I was use to paint some time ago.
Because, on the other hand, offer different possibilities and, as it happens with different medias and supports, each one allows to create and facilitate different ideas eventually different creations.
I am often bouncing back and forward from abstract to figurative, playing and studying, since day one, when I started with watercolors.
Sometimes I mix it all up, adding one element at a time into a unique composition with no schemes applied.
