(UK) ➣ Post-Surreal / Installation
“The main feature of my work is meticulous attention to detail in microcosms packed with different characters and full of fertile psychological situations. I use a miniaturist approach, supported by the use of a magnifying glass to define every square inch of the painting.
Urban contexts are dismembered in a dream-like swarm of architecture, forms and social relations disrupted, provocatively juxtaposed with no apparent order. Childhood memories and paranoid nightmares are recomposed with graphite or color on canvas and paper, often through pareidolia, returning a duel between the freedom of the absurd and arbitrariness of the rule.
The masters that have most influence on my work ranging from Leonardo to The Clash, Brueghel, Dali, from Hieronymus Bosch to Dead Kennedys”.
These are artists who want to push you as a listener, viewer, toucher, taster. They feel the competing powers that define human and inhuman experience and press this open the audience. This is work that requires the presence of the artist and the engagement – sometimes submission – of the public. Your senses will thank you for the embrace that is DELIQUIUM.
