Everything is drawing. Drawing equals painting. Painting equals drawing. No more time to wander between the two. Both coexist on paper and on canvas. In my mind there is no separation no more. When painting I draw. When I draw I do relate to painting. The procedures are the same in both mediums. It is all about the line that searches to capture figuration, to encapsulate reality in a linear configuration. Honesty is visible trough the transparency of procedures and that is my work ethic. Every mistake, pentimenti, and new layer of paint are visible in the final stage. The painting-drawing-painting is a narrative about my work process and a straightforward dialogue with the viewer.
