ABOUT IDA / 2014

About Ida (2014, oil on canvas, sizes vary) is a series of paintings based on Gertrude Stein’s Ida – A Novel.
The protagonist of the novel is a woman appearing and disappearing, being approached like a cubist portrait.
There is a correlation between the way Stein writes Ida and the things that I find interesting in the language of painting.
Ida is living the current moment all the time, over and over again. She is moving constantly from one place to another
and her presence seems to be scattered and overlapping several moments and places. She is doing disappearance tricks.
The paintings of About Ida are my interpretation of her, inspired by Stein’s way of using language and repetition.
