My drawing and paintings are representing domestic objects, household items, decoration pieces and other items that hold no special value such as packaging and disposable objects. I use acrylic, vinyl, and matt paint. When working on paper I use black paint and its dilutions. I take these objects and by altering their dimensions by sometimes using proportions far from reality (100cm x 70 cm), I connote the concept of an outdoor and its gigantic proportion. In order to achieve this effect, I place many pieces of paper next to each other allowing the painting to be spread out amongst them. Through this approach I could augment even the most insignificant thing to infinity.When the drawing is enormous it is very common for its elements to become more distorted, these are very significant to me. Another noteworthy aspect of my drawings is that the errors are painted over but their shadows can still be seen. To build up this effect, I make use of a variation of thicknesses in the contour lines.When painting in canvas, I usually do a composition that can be interpreted as “a contemporary still-life”. I create several layers by overlaying several images of objects. In a sense this effect can be compared to a “painting collage”. By making use of an extensive palette of colors with many shades, I increase this “collage” effect. Its many layers; physical and temporal, of different works and elements, diversify but all sharing the same space.
