I understand painting as an esoteric practice, a sort of alchemy whose mixture of technical and mythological elements allow addressing the impact that media overload is having in the way we perceive and produce images. In this context, my work seeks to activate the "occult" among the leftovers of digitisation through a doubled notion of painting, both as an archival tool to map out these leftovers as well as an art of picturing new meanings from this mapping. Using a wide collection of images picked from all kinds of sources, my practice explores the poetics of speculation on painting to observe and experiment with the modes in which memory and imagination can entangle each other, seizing upon the ambiguity that images acquire in the passage between both dimensions.
