Persona An investigation about human face: a mask? Oh, Earth! The different environments of our planet are the foundations of this series of works. Representing landscapes, I investigate the formal issues of abstract forms, space, perspective, composition, surface, color harmonies, light and shadow, in the attempt to evoke an emotional feeling. (All works in this portfolio are for sale. Please ask for price e-mailing to the artist and writing "price request" as subject).
