My initial choice was for the pure forms, a conscious appropriation of a method which is also a way of thinking of art: the painting is only surface painted and the lines and colors suffice for what they are, forms, not what can mean. There is no narrative or dramatic intent. There are traits that intersect and create patterns. A more ascetic art in which the artist distances himself than he does by creating, through a continuous and repeated gesture, a work formally well resolved and, purposely, without a soul. The intention with this was to create an image that characterized me as an artist, my image, my way of painting, a type of a "language".
