“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 and music. I´m influenced by the occidental tradition of chiaroscuro, the synthesis of forms  found in twentieth century art and the aesthetic of oriental ink drawings, prints and ceramics. I am interested in imaginary narratives of the human condition, exploring fictional mutations and surreal associations around identity from a biological point of view and also related to the formation of our planet. I enjoy creating objects and images that sit in ambiguous and sometimes contradictory areas of interpretation.  My methodology is to follow intuitive processes as a response to the material in order to create expressive shapes in drawings and sculptures, often mysterious and symbolic.
