“Terracotta” is one of my dynamic abstract pieces, filled with warm, earthy tones mostly in shades of terracotta. I used sweeping, fluid brushstrokes to give it a sense of movement and depth. The contrast between light and dark areas creates a layered, textured feel, which reminds me of natural elements like rock formations or aerial landscapes. By using acrylic paint and gouache on textured watercolor paper, I added a tactile quality that enhances the organic, geological essence of the piece.

Terracotta is part of the collection Panta Rei: The Flow Of Time

After spending days in IUC a couple of months ago, I’ve been thinking a lot about time. About our experiences, about our resilience and our strengths.

This collection of eight paintings is inspired by the idea that “everything flows”: all things are always changing and change is the only constant in life.

As always I’ve used very rich colors and intuitive brushstrokes, trying to show how life moves and how moments are connected.

With each painting I’ve tried to capture a different part of this endless movement of time, showing the deep emotions and the transformative power it brings. From the start of a new day to the end of evening, these artworks reflect the continuous flow of existence. I’ve tried to tell a story of movement and growth, in the timeless dance of life, reminding us that we are all part of an ever-changing, ever-flowing universe.
