It’s dark. Darkness makes you feel as if you were waiting for something. Black offers opportunities of strangeness. Everything is hidden and anything can happen. Suddenly, a bright, saturated color, as strong and dense as black, appears from the darkness and drips. It pours from an unexpected receptacle, it dazzles the composition and suddenly takes the main part. It’s captivating, seducing and confusing.These experiences of everyday objects are produced in tangible but enigmatic contexts, which amaze and suggest a narrative pattern. A piece of scenery, body, a suggested action, a light, may be suggestive of a world , and trace halos of potentialities around our subjects. If these images tell stories, we don’t name any of them. It’s about leading the eye in visually strong and surprising successive sequences.
