I moved in London in 2000. It is there that from being an architect I turned into a compulsive painter.
In 2008 I was commissioned to make a sea painting, from which a whole series of work followed. The impermanence of the sea makes it inherently abstract: it is a mass but you can go throughit, it is a container and yet a surface on which things can float, it is a splash and a wave, a cave underneath, a line in between, and all these at once. That was what interested me. The sketch on the right demonstrates a diagrammatic approach to painting that is close to the architectural diagram.
