    Cobalt blue is on my mind.

    This desire to paint and spend time with colour is becoming more and more voracious.

    When did I need colour that much?

    When did I miss feeling that ecstatic?

    Painting is magical, tricky and revealing.

    Painting with frescoes is even euphoric.

    Frescoes are unashamed.

    In cacti I bloomed.

    A sweet celebration of resilience and daydreaming.

    I retained my spine and my waters.

    Thick skin and dissolving soul.

    I kept fantasizing.

    I kept growing

     

     

    Fresco

    Fresco matures twice. In its first stage, it is a work of construction; surfaces are initiated, visuals are painted, the artist is active and the medium becomes solid. 

    In its second stage, the work manifests itself through its own degradation; the decay of the skin, the absence of the artist and the resistance of what remains. Through frescoes I explore the manifestation of time on surfaces. 

     

    Historical gesture appears in conversation with the present. Traces are evoked or retained, then investigated. Temporalities clash. I explore the paradox of a medium that can be timeless and vulnerable at once. I combine it with other techniques, particularly to process the idea of trace and fragmentation of time and space. I contest its immaculate historicity to suggest new boundaries and territories, relate to the sensuality of its surfaces that encapsulate every gesture and every error. I see it as a living material, constantly subject to growth. 

    Fresco allows me to pierce an ecosystem of consistencies and paradoxes and make them mine.
