Since 2006 I have been working in pictorial installations featuring paintings on movable structures and temporary wall paintings. In these installations the concept of montage is essential – it allows for the interplay of images while proposing a fragmented narration that privileges juxtaposition and superposition. Each image is an integral part of the choreography; however, the closeness of images is not determined by the logic of a linear narration, each painting contributes to build a syntax that goes through different times in the history of painting and re ‐examines likely relations between figure and space, tension and movement, isolation and ensemble.
