Statement

Un concepto muy presente en mi última obra, es la idea de evidenciar el cuadro ventana. Utilizo elementos figurativos, principalmente el paisaje, sobre los que superpongo formas geométricas "abstractas", creando la ilusión de dentro/fuera, en donde la forma geométrica, unas veces se ve dentro del paisaje "ventana", y al mismo tiempo en otro plano espacial por delante este, como si esta estuviese en un espacio interior y a través de una ventana se viese el espacio exterior, al igual que en las series de "cuadros ventana" de Magritte.


Me interesa unir conceptos opuestos, como modernidad y clasicismo. Figuración y abstracción.Realidad fotografiada y realidad pintada.


Técnicamente utilizo procesos tradicionales como el acrílico, y las nuevas tecnologías, como la fotografía y procesos digitales.
Fotografío o pinto paisajes rurales, cotidianos, por los que podemos transitar cada día, camino del trabajo, la escuela, de paseo, etc., donde la huella del hombre está presente.


Sobre los paisajes descritos, realizo manipulaciones, como el campesino en la tierra. Esta es mi huella dejada sobre el paisaje, instantes o vivencias acaecidas en un instante de mi vida en ese lugar, que se unen a las de otras personas.

A concept very much on my last work, is the idea of showing the picture window.Figurative use, especially the landscape, which superimpose shapes "abstract", creating the illusion of inside / outside, where the geometry, sometimes within the landscape is "window", while on another level space ahead of this, as if this was in an interior space and through a window saw outer space, as in the series of "pictures" window Magritte.

I am interested in joining opposites, as modern and classical. Figuration and abstracción.Realidad photographed and painted reality.

Technically use traditional processes such as acrylic, and new technologies such as photography and digital processes.

Photograph or paint rural landscapes, everyday, by which we travel each day, the way to work, school, walking, etc., Where the human footprint is present.

On the landscapes described manipulations, like the peasant in the land. This is my mark left on the landscape, moments or experiences that occurred in a moment of my life there, joining the others.
