Throughout my career I have often been interested in the concept of censorship both in metaphorical and literal sense.

In my artistic practice (among other things) I have been using found paintings on which I make various interventions and alterations. My "irrevocable" actions follow the same logic of economic supremacy in which the owner decides the ultimate destiny of the owned.

My approach to these paintings is intended to establish with them a dialectical but imbalanced relationship. The found artwork thus, becomes a palimpsest, a victim or a forced partner for the construction of a new visual structure.
