The work of the artist is marked by the presence of geometric lines and has strong constructivist inspiration.
Simplicity and Chaos
Through architectural and nature photography, I use geometric abstraction to explore ideas of contradictory concepts : simplicity and chaos. Repetition is also a recurrent element of my work.
My work is very minimalist and many times abstract. I make use of geometry, abstraction and repetition to show how everything, from made man structures to natural forms, can be both simple and chaotic at the same time.
In my process I use fragmentation and work in multiples such as diptychs and triptychs to shoe the evolution of my thought process. The images can be either visually organized, fragmented, or complete abstractions that represents our duality.
