In my paintings I study relationships and, specifically, love. While painting portraits
I engage in a conversation with the portrayed person and that is how I get
to know people: establish relationships;
fall in love. The embodied rhythm of the conversation itself, the process of synchronization or friction is rather more important to me, than the subject matter and the content of the conversation. Sometimes silence is pure gold and it's the most important conversation.

 

What matters to me is if a person is willing to open up to me and how this person does it. This process of making
a portrait through conversation is all about intimacy, vulnerability and desire to see the stories that constitute someones’ subjectivity. It’s a dialogue, when I open up as well and share my stories. When I unveil something intimate, I expect the same in return. I’m vulnerable and I invite the person in front of me to be vulnerable as well. We are no longer strangers anymore; we look at each other with different eyes. Trust, acceptance and love are emerging in our eyes and gestures. This process and its magic is what I’m working with.
