In my work painting has been a way to knowledge and understanding. Elements of water appeared in my visual research and I felt the need to study this compound from many different aspects.
My research now is on the human perception of water in states which the eye can’t “fully see”. Our awareness of water is much limited while it is in movement or at a macro level. I go there with and without my camera and looking through water in movement, beautiful distorted images of reality can appear. Supported by the scientific knowledge and philosophy of water my research try to analyze, understand and interpret water visually, representing the truth of the feeling I had at the moment of shooting.
