Portrait are a series of studies on the face and its metamorphoses. On the surface of the skin of the face the artist seeks an internal morphology of the spirit of the body. The deformation present in the “Portrait” works expresses through an architecture of signs the impossibility of adapting to a definitive form to keep alive a perennial game of forces in tension. The works of M. Q. shake the perceptive system of the viewer to open new ways of sensitivity, without any intention of building disturbing figures. A painting “that touches the nervous system” and can make something new concretely sensitive.
