One of the main motivations for me to develop my work is a need for that which doesn’t have shape. Faced with the impossibility of dissolving the limits of form itself, I went in the opposite direction to try to see those limits as more and more precise and unequivocal. My aim is to try to find systems that are always open to new possibilities. In this sense, the repetition of shapes, colors and patterns has become the key to finding alternative solutions. The consequence of this repetition is exuberance and excess but, above all, the introduction of the notion of “decorative” in the field of abstraction.
