I loved you fiercely,
while you didn’t have a clue.
And it ruined me.

Candela is comprised of a focused series of 10 x 8 inch oil paintings which the artist began last year, following a group of figurative works that were presented as a solo show at LISTE, Basel in June 2012. In these canvases, painted from observation, full figures were posed and defined by ambient candlelight. The new works featured in this exhibition focus even further on this initial, simple idea: a single, lit candle defining the object, figure or space adjacent to it. Each painting contains light and delineates the subject, proposing simple and poetic pictorial narratives.
