Embodying silence

Substituting glass for canvas, I use shadow as the raw material in the composition of my installation-paintings.


I apply paint to the transparent surface, which becomes a vector for a shifting darkness, reacting to changes in perspective as well as to fluctuations in light.


Gradually, my research into the links between presence and absence led me to explore the idea of "painting" by subtracting the matter, favoring the use of blades rather than brushes.
