Art Concept - Mixed media and Photographic technique

My work, it is all about a long lost past, lost loves, lost faces, images and sensations that are asking for a physical space in this present world, they are asking for colour, shape, texture, taste... they are asking for life. My mission is to provide to these silent stories a voice and a body, allowing them to become a part of my present, visible world, and therefore, providing them from the opportunity to go on in real time, with a new shape and a new purpose. They become eloquent stories and fairytales.

​I discovered the magic of old photographs left behind in flea markets, which I started collecting more than a decade ago and  they soon became one of the most important source of inspiration.  The materials I use can be very diverse.  I create my own conceptual self portrait photography and I transform those images using a variety of techniques and mediums until they lose their contextual shape.  For me, transformation is the real act of creating art.  To be able to transform my reality into a magical realm where real life collides with dreams and nightmares, is what my work is all about. 

My work builds itself on layers of different materials, this is how I have developed my own technique which I call: “faux tintype”, with this technique I aim to recreate the simulation of metallic structure using transparent foil and different chemicals. It is important for me  to create texture and a sense of  "tangibility" to the images. Like small windows to a small story. The result of that story is up to the viewer, it is like filling in the lines but through their experience and sensations. In this way my art becomes a direct line of communication through empathy and imagination.

My work explores images from the past, giving vintage material, through a mixture of digital techniques, a completely new life and energy, all this evoking nostalgic textures and processes. The purpose of my images is to create a relatable shore for the emotional and psychological human experience. Every image is a window to a story using photography as a medium to create visuals attached to a feeling or an emotion.
