fused landscape- from “Planted” series
Planted -My most developed series is called “Planted”. The common denominator of this body of work is the starting point of my choice to reuse old paintings - portraits, landscape and still-lifes, works that I have done in the past. Around these existing paintings I tailor a narrative to the ”characters”, a plot that is completely new to the creation of the early painting. The portraits are of real people that I have painted from observation but the whole scene in which I ‘plant’ the portraits is invented, fabricated. The characters are inserted into a story that is not theirs, moving between different possibilities of reality.
