Quote: “Men are different from each other by what they show and resemble each other by what they hide”. Paul Valéry

We come across a multitude of things that are more complex than we’ll ever really know. What can be seen is not always the full picture, and what is beneath the surface can speak volumes.

A painting might be inspired by a flash of beauty, an emotional sensation or an intent of making visible the invisible inside us. We set out to capture an inner vision that is charged, or brought
forth by the objects or places that we see in the physical world or in our imagination. We project our internal reality into art to make the viewer dive in an undiscovered universe.

The essence of our artworks brings together the distance between vision and imagination and invites you into other worlds: landscapes that reflect an inside atmosphere, sensual abstractions to
dive into infinity.
