Painting is a kind of make up, an excercise, not to beautify, but to see the truth of reality.
One of the main questions in painting is: how much do we touch? How much do we apply to the canvas? What kind of make up do we use? Or do we want to scratch everything off? We can dress and undress the canvas, we can dress and undress the way we look at the world.
In the arts, before taking up the camera, I started as a painter. But also as a filmmaker, in the last decade I kept on painting as a way of thinking about the world. How much do we apply or veil, how much do we ly down on our own nature? Painting is a way of undressing the eyes - a research that shows the road to my true home.
