This series of paintings was inspired by the urban landscape that surrounds me. People see my paintings and recognize their own city and their own reality. I chose to represent the city at night to accentuate its contrasts. When night falls, the sky is covered over, with clouds becoming barely visible. Normally bustling high-rises take on a sleepy demeanour in the dim light. Street lights provide a faint glow to darkened alleyways while cars cast silent beams in the distance. At night, the city is filled with mystery and shadows, leading us to wonder what we can’t see. This is the city at night.

"I am greatly interested in those notions of universality and diversification of the language, visual or other. Although it can seem contradictory, my own universality can be found in the constancy of my acrylics, which depict impressions of architectural and everyday scenes, in playful and intimate atmospheres."
