Transition Space 2019

My work tries to explore an infinite intermediate area where external and internal realities amalgamate. An area that Winnicott saw as a transition space, where an individual can assume the identity of a fictional character, intertwined with his own, without fear, consequences, or retaliation.
 
This space, where painting is a product of an ongoing investigation into the medium itself, and where the nature of an uncontrollable automatism of unconscious elements that swarm indecisively in each thought, is what I use as a means of transition to potentially understand the acts of the painter. I believe that it is up to painters to decide what painting is and will be.
