"My work is an attempt to document feelings or emotions that cannot be expressed in words and are more subtle than love, desire, pain, etc. The closely cropped format serves to eliminate all areas surrounding the figure, giving greater emphasis to a particular gaze or body gesture which expresses these emotions only at a certain moment in time, which never repeats. I wish to catch this exact moment when the soul shows itself exactly as it is to the world, in the most fragile part of its inner self, when the soul is the one of a child. I wish to paint the beauty of organic inner growth - of the soul."
