Artist statement


Dialectic of shape

The aim is to get the personal involved with the formal and the conceptual, to follow an investigation line and twist it, to lead it towards my inner world. Reflection comes later. At the beginning most of it is improvisation, working over the unexpected. The process of choosing a technique, a support, takes place behind my back, it is an opaque compulsive process, whose results are constantly reformulated; they multiply and expand.

Doing is liberation. It goes beyond decision. It is a question. How do I turn my perception of reality into an entity? What is real?

What is most important is to follow that instinct. The sense is not important, here is no wear and tear, there is no losing in the process because the final adjustment of my work always receives its own place in my emotional history.

Rational – Irrational. Time denial, space alteration. Dreams and memories of black holes. Intangible space.

The work of art is adrift, seeking, roaming, erring and not even reaching a final meeting. The end itself is a random ride. Changing the coordinates, mutating, exploring, destroying, beginning a-new, changing the starting point. Changing the axis. It is no for everything to be indifferent, it is for new possibilities to arise. New states, new alterations, new us, + strengths, + us. Singularity that evolves into plurality. Shape of life without shape, no thirst for shape, no thirst for truth, no thirst for judging or being judged. Become invisible to be oneself.

Let it happen and live with the outcome. A game between tension and liberation. Work as space of struggle, space of permanent revolution, going beyond things because it is knowledge, it is avant-garde and as a result it is void.

It is shape

Tension of shape

Morality of shape.
