MODERN CAVEMAN

(Current Work)

''It is not the strongest of species that survive, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change''.(Charles Darwin). Our species has become the most dominant species on Earth, partly because it has adapted to change ''better'' than any other species. Our modern world though functions at a constant high speed, but behind the veil of technology and all the communication tools humans have at disposal, mankind suffers of an increasing disconnection, with itself, with others, and with the Natural environment.  This series of paintings insists on the need to stop and reset to essential human values.

''Modern Caveman'' and ''The Missing Room'' Series show a process that is made of deep glazes dialoguing with bold colors and constantly playing with positive and negative spaces. Graphism is reinforced by a strong linear work that cuts the space in daring compositions.
