Small sample of recent work 2016-17

My new work deals with flesh as a quality and an experience that belongs simultaneously to the perceiver and to the thing perceived, something that Merleau Ponty refers to as the 'Flesh of the World'.
I work mainly with soft pastels. The work puts together paintings of parts of nature, and especially trees, with paintings of the flesh.
Developing these paintings I have looked to past painting, especially to Baroque painting and especially the work of Rubens.
