I was born in southern Spain and have been living in London since 2001, when I came here to complete a degree at Central St Martins College.
My work tends to be an interpretation of images from online and print media that I find compelling on some level, without over-analyzing the reasons why they are of interest. This approach allows for a more spontaneous painting process that involves the subconscious more than the conceptual, and possibly allows for a greater degree of interpretation on the part of the viewer, by virtue of being less overtly prescriptive. The source image needs to grab me at a deep level, and the completed painting needs to feel true to that essence, while still being something new and unique in its own right, something unexpected.
Rebecca Wilson, Director of Saatchi Gallery, recently organised a curators project on the Saatchionline website, and my work was selected by the following respected international curators:
Nina Miall (Director Haunch of Venison), Nicolas Trembley (Curator Syz Collection), Matthias Harder (Chief Curator Helmut Newton Foundation), Cheryl Sim ( Curator DHC Art), Andrea Schlieker (Independent Curator), Paolo Colombo (Istanbul Museum of Modern Art), Cathy Lomax (Director Transition Gallery), Aoife Rosenmeyer (Independent Curator and art critic).
