ARTIST’S STATEMENT

By observing the reality, I immerse myself in the searching of my deepest emotions with the visceral need of picturing in a canvas, in a photo... The use of symbols and signs, help in a way, to that reading.

Life as a canvas or an empty space is as a mystery that can be lived without labels, and forgetting behavior samples.

The idea of the work of art is to have a transforming character, if we watch reflexively, doubtingly, we will create a meeting place with ourselves.

Only the bystander may enjoy the interrogative attraction that over him exerts the work of art.

I invite you to enjoy this pleasure...
