More than telling stories.

Drawing.
Intimate projections.

I only draw and paint people, without adornments or scenery. Monica, Ricardo, Luis, Filipa, Sofia, and their other selves. Them and their Other Selves take a central role in my aesthetical choices, because, after all, They are also where we place the most significant projections of our imagination.

Through the face, I am interested in capturing emotional tensions. They rise through a disquieting but static stance. Sometimes fragile, sometimes confident and strong, but often looking outside the frame, as someone who expects an answer in confronting attitudes against themselves and against the ones who observe.

More than telling stories, my work always tries to bring to light the emotions and feelings that, many times, the faces repeatedly conceal and forget. I question moods and conflicts. What really matters is that the drawing serves its purpose as the stage where private places, intimate projections, emotions and impulses are revealed.
