Artist’s Statement: ”
“The Lute Player is my interpretation of Caravaggio’s painting with the same title. Caravaggio’s paintings combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional. In my latest paintings I am interested in the counterbalance between corporeal and spiritual and my aim is to achieve this by creating equilibrium between painting and drawing. Abstract and figurative elements in equal measure”.
