“All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone. the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.”

Marcel Duchamp

 

“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows,

the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates.”

Jun'ichirō Tanizaki

 

 

 

 

 

My practice focuses in ceramics & drawing. I´m influenced by the occidental tradition of chiaroscuro, the synthesis of forms found in twentieth century art and the value given to crafts in oriental ink drawings, prints and ceramics. I ́m interested in imaginary narratives of the human condition, exploring fictional mutations and surreal associations around identity from a biological point of view and related to the concept of Deep Time. My methodology follows intuitive processes as a response to the material and I articulate these to create semi abstract expressive shapes in drawings and sculptures often mysterious and symbolic that sit in ambiguous and sometimes contradictory areas of interpretation.
