Books

I see the making of artist books as a conceptual and playful space of reflection on my experience as a painter: a practice which bounces back and forth with the paintings, each one nourishing the other. They are 'thought winks'. The idea comes first, then I experiment and build what I believe is the most appropriate, successful and efficient way of finalising them.

Short films

Making short films is also an approach that reflects on my painting practice. I thought of the 101 videos as little performance scenes which witness some of the incessant questions and doubts that I face while I think about my act of painting: why am I doing it? what am I doing? A language which replaces a diary: instead of writing it, I filmed it:
