Still Life on Niche, 2020

Given the impossibility of representing the 'light' of a specific month, I tried to capture the atmosphere through the light, with its colours, it's shadows or its vibrancy. Even though the elements remain the same, each month there's a new scene manifesting changes related to a certain month; wether by reason (the known angles of the sun on specific times for ex.) or emotion (the use of a symbolic colour to express a season), the scene is always changing in accordance to an idealized seasonal cycle (taking place in a temperate climate of the northern hemisphere.

Still life with a single pear and a self-reference, 2020

Another study in light (where the long shadows fall).

OVUM, 2020

[lead-like mercury - (rejoicing and in motion) - manifests the whole]
It's not much of a riddle, every sage will tell you that the egg came first. The egg was then split, and became the 'heavens' and the 'earth', and all things great and small that therein exist, proceeded from the very same egg.

Still Life with Silver Apple, 2020

A simple scene, inspired by the light studies that Monet did in his series about the Cathedral in Rouens. While the apple may stand in the foreground, light is the main character on this scene, lending it's flexible and dramatic nature to add further emotional tones to the composition, which by its action, changes dramatically throughout the day, opening up to new geometric interpretations.

#97 - A bone idol, 2019

'They remind me of those little figurines that the Romans had... idols of household deities' - he said - '... or maybe the Slavic ones made of wood? Either way, odd as it may be, it makes sense to find some of these laying around.'
