Artist's interpretation of the work:

This work draws its inspiration from Mesopotamian mythology, in which the goddess ISHTAR was forced to remove a veil each time she passed through one of the seven gates of the underworld.


The brightly-colored scrolls evoke the veils, while the dark background describes the underworld.


A second, less seductive version refers to an episode in the Biblical story in which Salome performs the dance of the seven veils as a reward for the head of John the Baptist, whose death she had requested.

  • Bright colors, diverse shapes and textures, made from structural mortar, sand, wood, paper, spalter or knife applications... all techniques that allow him to express himself without a net. Sometimes guided by an intuitive approach, he begins his creations with a background graded from dark to light, onto which he deposits, projects, spreads, dabs and rubs the paint, bringing it to life, making the colors vibrate and animating the shapes.

*Colors may vary from one screen to another.
