Artist Statement

My work is mixed media (etching ink, asphaltum and linseed oil) on photographic emulsion. The drawings that I create are free hand renderings of animals and human figures, where chiaroscuro plays a predominant role, and the application of the ink, through a reductive process, gives the work an ambiguous pictorial sense. Above all, I look for simplicity and balance. I manipulate the technical borders between painting, drawing and photography as a way to create images that attract, seduce, confront and engage the viewer’s subconscious mind.

 

The emotional impact of my images communicates a profound, personal psychological reality of the time I am living. They exist on the flat space of the photographic emulsion, either remaining in a tense calmness or moving in a frenetic way as trying to run away but without a clear idea of where to go, reflecting on the chaotic condition of our urban environments and consumerist culture we live in, where physical and psychological existence is always being pushed to the limit.

 

My work is deeply rooted in figuration, coming from the tradition of the Spanish Baroque School. I am constantly pushing the conceptual sources of this tradition and its historical influence on my art by stretching the limits of its boundaries, and extending static notions of painting and drawing to merge them with photography. As a result of this, my images are classical in appearance but strongly contemporary in the way they are conceptualized and rendered.
