Artist's Work


    Work introduction

    Apart from the different series in which I structure my work, there are
    principally two big and evident divisions. On the one hand there are the
    pieces where I work with vegetable elements (gardens, scales …) and for
    other one what we might be call architectures (interior spaces, cities …)
    In all of them there is a clear inclination towards the geometric forms
    where across mathematical and rational concepts I submit them to criteria
    of order, pace and sequence.
    In turn the use of the white color is vital in my work as synthesis of all the
    colors and symbol of the absolute thing. The white bodies give us the idea
    of purity and modesty, believe a luminous impression of empty, positive
    In the series "Mirages" I play with the juxtaposition of thin slabs of
    porcelain where the movement of the same ones, together with the effect
    that the lights and the shades produce, they are vital to create this
    mysterious atmosphere that precedes a mirage. I usually work with
    graphical designs that are interesting or attractive for their pace,
    symmetry, geometry … and that are in our daily landscape.
