The project AMIG@ – Quíen eres? (Friend – who are you?) deals with people I encounter in online social networks.*) Every statement made online reveals something about the poster and I find myself asking: WHO ARE YOU?
The answer lies in what is not said and what is not shown. That’s where I find a real sense of the person behind the statement – their own particular energy. I pick up on this energy and translate it onto canvas. I create portraits which tell a story.
I paint exclusively in acrylic. Depending on the person I am portraying, I will work breezily in the technique of water colour painting or impastos, using light or dark base colours.
