I never describe my paintings or tend to explain them. But when I was making my last series, I contemplated a lot my intention and what drew me to paint the way I do and I came to the idea that all my work is inspired by memories. I remembered for example, how much I loved gardens but never had one of my own. Through the creative process, this became a journey into another reality in which I could express that longing in a poetic way. My paintings are like windows into an alternate universe, formed from images that re-created the past in a unique and beautiful way.
I have always been fascinated by old papers like letters, books or documents. They all seem to me to keep secrets and stories beyond what we can read in them. Some time ago I came across some vintage letters that were in the trash, a treasure ! When I started reading them I realized that they were actual love letters. I inmediately felt that I had to give them a second life and honour them.
The “Love Letters” series of drawings and paintings are brightly colored and abstractly painted. The painting’s playful and vibrant style allows them to express joy and pleasure while keeping the words somehow hidden. Each painting tells its own story within the confines of the paper. The letters still remain a secret, giving the viewer the opportunity to interpret the meaning on their own.
The bright and lively colors add an air of mystery and intrigue to the imagery and help express a new story in a poetic way.
I have prepared each letter a a separate painting, attaching them to a watercolor paper. They are coated with anti UV varnish to protect them from sun exposure (avoid to hang them on a wall that has direct sun light exposure all day). These are gouache paintings, acrylic or watercolor pencils and they are written in Spanich or French. You can find them in this section of my website.
