I make paintings and drawings. By questioning the concept of movement,

I find that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness,

a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities.

 

The paintings open a poetic vein,

where multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability

of our seemingly certain reality is questioned.

By choosing mainly formal solutions,

I try to develop forms that do not always follow logical criteria,

but are based on subjective associations,

which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.

 

My work is based on inspiring situations:

visions that reflect a sensation of curiosity or serene contemplation,

combined with subtle details of odd or eccentric, humoristic elements.
