I use images that are either direct appropriation or
images made by me, then transformed on the computer.
I mix these images with photographs of previously painted
canvases, this amalgamation created with the help of
digital techniques. The resulting combination is then
digitally printed on photographic paper. By gathering
all these elements, I attempt to create a convergence
of different artistic disciplines, an intersection of
mediums. I give these works the appearance of painting
reproductions, or more precisely, of photographic reproductions
interested in surrounding the work in an atmosphere
of "lies" and "falsification". I
want the spectator to see that an "original work
of art" can be an "original reproduction".
All my effort is directed at expressing "doubt"
with respect to the "base" of the image, where
these doubts have taken root. I'm fascinated with the
intangible space created by this mixture of mediums.
A virtual space is opened before me with great possibilities
and approaches that place called artistic feeling. This
"non-place" allows me to engage in a dialog
between traditional pictorial elements and the photographic
digitally manipulated image as a way to represent the
subject of my work generally focuses on the masculine
and the feminine worlds with their yearnings for mutual
approach in the waiting room of physical contact: the
moment before they touch, the space between seduction
and desire with its gestures and demeanors.
