“The figurativism I practice takes its accents from photography to make the image aesthetic. This N.Y.C. picture has been painted using a composition of several photographs taken from the hotel where I was staying, the old New Yorker, as an outline. The buzz of the city rises from below like smoke on a battlefield. This feeling led me to add a pixelated backdrop of the city that never sleeps: the clouds we see, in the form of a collage, pertain to “The Surrender of Breda” by Velázquez. Both the mechanical reproduction of a historic painting (which adds pixels to facades filled with square windows) and the photographic origin of the view (with multiple vanishing points) leave their mark on my painting.”
