"In 2018, I started painting moments of life between people or oneself. I focus on detailed characters and isolate them from their context by specifically placing them on top of suggestive, desaturated and soothing background shapes. My goal is to capture the timeless and spaceless feeling of a moment that links one with him/herself, one to another, and with the viewer with him/herself, leaving space for nostalgia and self wonder. First Inspired by old family photos found in a trunk at my grand parent’s house, the series quickly evolves into looking at people in today’s world and places that caught my attention during my morning walks". -Chalavie
