RGB Paintings, a series of paintings on paper inspired by the forms of human relationships through contemporary means of communication. Red, green and blue are the colours that constitute the pixels of the digital screens. These colours function as a representation of reality, as a filter of our perception that arises through contemporary forms of communication.

The paper is manually painted, cut and glued in order to arrange a raster structuring the painting. The composition is created by technical “glitches” occurring during the process. Some “bits” of papers fall, unglued from the support resulting in a random lack of data, which is supplanted by the background, creating new colours and flecks of information on a monochromatic (or three-chromatic) surface.
