  • On the images of my artworks I attempt to show what there is beyond the linearity of the story of the characters portrayed. I compose with the idea of expressing worlds or scenes created by the imagination of these characters. I use masks that cover their faces as a metaphor for the liberation of their imagination; even by covering their faces no signs or gestures; if they are angry, sad or smiling. They are just standing in a neutral pose, suspended at a time in which their imagination emerges and transports them to a desired moment.  The environment in which these characters are, is the result of their own imagination, the Nature is represented in an idealized form and some way in a dreamlike atmosphere. The characters portrayed are dressed in vintage clothing to generate in the viewer a sense of timeless context.  I create the sketches with the help of images found on the internet or botanical encyclopedia. Once the sketch is closer to my initial idea, i take it to the final support. In this transference from the sketch to the final support, the composition elements are processed and become a kind of synthesis of the original images, even sometimes completely different. I am not interested at this time to make an accurate representation of the reality of each element, but a juxtaposition where my imagination is present in every moment of the process of the work.
