By painting it’s possible to introduce remote or unsustainable elements into a small frame. The vision of the painting as container allowed the artist to have instinctive possibilities of making landscapes or still life, bringing them is a single autobiographical system built on the personal memory.

Then, no reduction of form is needed since silence is present when loudly embodied. Here, I aim to explore a non-terminal still death-aware idea of representation that can be added upon painting’s essence.
