Figurative painting can transcend reality through its realism, and bring a notion other than descriptive, otherwise its work becomes a kind of storyboard - illustration. Abstract painting, on the other hand, may have erased the suggestive elements of reality, without losing touch with it, without forgetting the concern for reality and its experience. In both cases, we can even say that the border is an area of freedom: that of creation.
Painting is not in the choice of a figurative or abstract camp. On the theoretical level, I practice this abstraction in the etymological sense of the term. By a composition that generates meaning without referring directly to the concrete first of all. Then, by an idealization of the forms and features that allow the representation of a subject. By this the subject is no longer a simple object, but a story, a pictorial discourse. For me, painting is a language in the strict sense of the word, which does not simply seek the trace of the world as it offers itself to us.
