series - travels

These paintings are a part of my life. In fact, during my travels in Asia I was able to witness with my own eyes these scenes that triggered my imagination. Asia with its vibrant colors, catches your eyes at every corner. My aim was to sing the stories of these people, from remote and stranger places but yet so close to us. 

i wanted the spectator to feel close to the painted subject, to feel what they feel, to see what they see. That is why for some of the paintings I chose the close-up  to overwhelm the spectator with plenty of details, details about their outfit, the patterns, the embroideries, ect...

As a textile designer lots of emphasize was given to the fabrics and its intricate details. In Asia my love and fascination for ethnic minorities gradually got stronger as i travelled from secluded villages to rice paddies...ect

Also for who wants to discover the symbolic meaning behind the scene, there is space for interpretation. i used painting as a way to travel.....
