Painting

The paintings below are made with my personal technique where the line is the ruler of the paintings, outlining the empty space which is represented by the white spaces. Each line is traced at the exact pase of breathing. The tracing of lines are in fact an embodied experience. The images are the results of residencies abroad, geo/theo-political issues and spirutual inquiries.

The Mythology series is a new painting project which sees myths coming again on our planet, changing their role, perhaps getting addicted to it or just coming having a look to what's happening. The myths travel through time to help us solving the main issue on earth, spiritual and physical.

MUSEUM OF PALESTINE IN CAPETOWN

In 2015 after being invited in Palestine for a theo-political Tour, I have been invited after a few months to Cape Town where I painted a 8 metres canvas inspired by the Trip to Palestine and the last Station of the Via Dolorosa in analogy with the current polittical situation in Palestine . The Canvas is 8 Metres, which is the height of the wall which divided Israel and Palestine, the Painting is now a permanent work present in the museum of Palestine in Cape Town.
