Painting - Experimental Film

The past four years I have traveled to islands in Polynesia and the Amazon jungle of Peru and Brazil to paint using natural color pigments. The paintings are designed to fit in my backpack and the colors are linked to the places I visit and the cultures I meet. I’m learning about different ways of being in the world, and viewing life, from people living close to nature. I study the use of natural color pigments in body painting, tattoo and decoration of everyday objects.
Using my sensitivity, I translate the impressions I receive into a painted language. For me, the painting is alive. Through the encounter with the minerals, nature and my own and other cultures, I am looking for soul and power to give to my paintings.
