As an artist I have a special interest in shape and color. Standing in the field of abstraction, although with some little license in figuration, I seek to work around those forms that escape every category - forms between forms - that are born from the experience of doing and whose entity is based on the question: How do you name what is not known?
Starting from figure-ground, positive-negative relationships developed from the color generated by various layers in the body of the work, I seek to investigate the infinite possibilities of form. From the drawing of random figures, I build a universe of solids and holes that alternate their roles within the scene. In the search for a certain shape, unexpected figures appear in the intermediate spaces, in the voids, in the excess rest. The leading form is suspected and yields its dominance to a new form that appears; a game of tensions, associations and struggles then opens up that fragilely materialize, momentarily, in the final image.
On the other hand, it is essential for me to move in different directions and techniques, considering crucial for my way of expressing myself, the simple act of doing, through which I discover new ways to approach the behavior of forms and their possibilities in the visual universe. I work mainly with bright colors and contrasting palettes to enhance the differences, tensions and associations that arise between them.
