Artist Statement

In the years 2009 and 2010 I devoted my research in silkscreen with large images from direct techniques with drawing on the support matrix.The work done walked between the questions and technical discoveries and resolutions aesthetic that I sought to give the graphics.Most of the pictures presented in the portfolio were produced in series, precisely in an attempt to formalize an idea. Each fragment (picture) is the result of a process of work not yet completed. The series are constructed of research, questions and problems posed. They seek the solution of problems in an effort to reach an idea.

In Tarkovsky's film Andrei Rublev is narrated the story of Boriska the son of a deceased maker of bells. Faced with the threat of being beheaded if the bell is not tolling, Boriska manages an entire village, and just following your instincts, build a bell for the prince. To his credit there was only the knowledge taught by his father. However, after the bell is complete, the ring revealed all the uncertainties of production and the fact that his father had never taught all the secrets. Moved by the production of Boriska, who built a bell even without scientific knowledge of the craft, Rublev, which does not paint anymore, he decides that the two should stay together: Boriska making the bells, and he painted the murals.The projection of results of a project requires anticipating the future, but my screen printing involves the production and facing constant search for technical applications of the material, together with gaps and aesthetic relationships that makes me fill the role. So how do you describe an art production, subject to endless interference: the medium, techniques, discoveries, the instrumentalities of materials, trials, improvements and the artist himself?
