We often speak of the dichotomy between mind and body and the many cliché and less cliché paradigmes. From the healthy mind healthy body – the body doesn’t lie – a wild mind stuck in a body – it’s all in the mind, to the taboos imposed on the body ( mostly the female one) … More Puppets
How does an artist mind work? Get an idea – a feeling – a vision for it – go do it. Sometimes it takes a little time – sometimes it’s instant, sometimes it’s instant and ends up taking up a little more time than anticipated. It is often the way I work with personal projects.

Tattoos are a permanent etching on the skin – like a scar or a line – even if nowadays we can remove most things ‘inconvenient’ ( not without some kind of trace).

You know what they say – there are those kinds of people with addictive personalities and are prepared to do a lot for their fix. I developed an infatuation for a tree, yes this tree. I drove back to the area to spend a few more days taking photographs of this tree ( admittedly I had other reasons too … More One tree hill – One thousand ways .
