How do the backgrounds and landscapes in your paintings support the subjects?
The fact of placing these figures in a landscape amplifies the space of the composition... our gaze can simultaneously have a direct collision with the foreground and with the air in the background. These kinds of landscapes can sometimes also become the surface of a table, and then the scale of the figure decreases, and the piece is transformed into a domestic still life.
