"I work in art since 1980 and I'm changing the media, the supports and techniques, depending on each project. Usually incorporated texts or text fragments as an element in the construction of each proposal, use the titles of each work also as a structural element to incorporate the written word (sometimes modifying its graphic) as a visual element.
Conceptually, the work that I want to develop / investigate the relationship between images and language as symbolic productions, how they interact and mutually modify their meanings, generating new / other senses for each image, but also for each concept. "
