Blue 2014-

The Blue Series are paintings on oil on gessoed board, following a renascent recipe of very stable and noble materials, marble powder among them. The finalised surface has a soft shine that resembles china, and allows for the oil to slide when working wet on wet. The series, that will comprise a total of 7 paintings, all have an  oval shape and blue hues. This “blues” seems to appeal to a collective memory (of white-blue exquisite china). But the landscapes in blue of this series takes not on dragons or later western bucolic representations, but on the tropics, seeking to awake the desire for a far away paradise, while at the same time showing a nature that is also slightly menacing.
