Emotion turns into a medium that draws and portrays my hand on the fabric, as if rhythmical beats couldn’t dodge the eco they produce in my interior: the pulse of a natural and magical place when looking for astounding discoveries, encounters or the day-to-day routine, which I observe with pause and time. This takes shape within many themes, which have evolved around these experiences and remained always true to them and their authenticity. They gave origin to different series, mothered and sustained by the literary genre of poetry, as an inseparable alliance during their execution. In each one of them, I have used diverse techniques at the service of purpose and intention.
At first, “The Fruits” –“Las Frutas”– appear as a true cookery of flavors and colors, with the strength of the spatula and agglomerated textures. A material paintwork that lives with slightly outlined and diluted strokes, captured in my imaginary, is stored ready-to-open, with the rush of someone who tries something for the first time.
Then, I went to its origin: “The Seeds” –“Las Semillas”–, a phase of subtleties and fainted colors that evoked appearances through light and diaphanous sketches. After a while, riversides captivated me with their naturally fallen and dragged waste: tree seeds, fruits and the fascinating colors of wet bedrocks, which I later took to the canvas in aquarium-style submerged models.
The sea and its high tide drew me later. First, the cracked and colorful rocks in opposition to entering and leaving water that caresses with a soft and curved brush, and secondly, the stiffness of the broken line in the bleeding open rocks, incredibly inhabited by lichens and wild flowers.
In another moment, a furtive find. Algae of multiple shapes, tones and transparencies showed ephemeral colors when backlighted and reflected with sunlight. A hanging rope allowed me to see its organic figures, in the southern coast of Chile.
An incredible collection of pocket watches belonging to the British Museum originates the narrative of “Tiempo al Tiempo” –“Time to time”–, which appears as an imperious necessity of inviting us to consider the value of detention. As harmony of its inner peace, we taste with complete freedom moments we would have stopped upon those strangling hands otherwise. In this series, I use yesterday’s technique (graphite) and
today’s (color), as a way of graphically representing time in its different dimensions, with a language close to symbolism.
With nature always as a guiding principle, the “Habitants” –“Los Habitantes”– appear as minimal characters living in groves of trees as an expression of their littleness compared to the natural world’s immensity.
From the series “Un Buen Día me Traje el Mar” –“A Good Day I Brought the Sea”–, metals, scrap, and tatters appear with fragments of a ship forgotten in time under dialoguing oxides and emeralds. Chunks of wood float in their own memory of a “Bajamar” 2.0, full of endless attached mollusks, creating a feeling where all that enters this sea magic turns into familiar figures washed by time.
In general, the law that reigns in almost all of my series, appears to be the insistence of a close up, a zoom in of the observed, wanting to pass on its internalized essence with an own and expressive language.
