Throughout my artworks, I challenge the human tendency of trying to have total control over the observation phenomenon, defying our natural instinct to perceive the environment as synthetically as possible. The excess of information, together with the interlacing of modules, puts at risk a clear and coherent visual message, which can provoke a sensation of otherness and difference from everyday experiences.
By making a mix between the recovery of crafts, such as carpentry, metalwork and weaving together with abstract art, I try to rescue the craftsmanship of handmade objects, where one can perceive through the work the variations of the hand that made it.
I found fascinating the way the human being develops confection and construction techniques to work with different materials, sometimes untraceable at their origins. I often think about the first human beings and their early approaches to painting and sculpting images that can be found in archaeological sites. I feel as if they could still communicate fundamental questions.
I like expressing ambivalence, that is, the coexistence of opposing ideas within the same concept based purely on abstraction, emphasizing simultaneous perception. Like in the case of something homogeneous that can be, at the same time, heterogeneous or even in the way certain layouts may vibrate depending on the focus of the observer’s attention.
