LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Ever since I started painting, and surely without end, I’ve always tried to find my own style that reflects what I want to express, a dynamic and constantly changing style that incorporates my training, my projects and my experiences. Is it important to have a common thread? I don’t know. I think I’m looking for it. At least I try to give coherence and cohesion to my work. I’m introducing new styles, forms of expression and techniques that represent me.
Thanks to my training in Fine Arts and Architecture, I understand the concepts behind the Art movements, which at the same time provoke a movement in me. Using and trying different techniques and tools, the “leitmotiv” that I need, I look for and that will always accompany me is outlined.
My work has a high figurative and pictorial content. Not as a simple nostalgic return to the past, but as a representation tool to create something honest. I believe painting begins with a vague idea, without definition, without limitations; a tenuous vision of a concept that takes shape and form as I execute it. It is the process of execution itself that becomes a tool of creation. The purpose of my work is to explore physically and visually the insight that I want and need to show to the viewer.
My idea is that the work becomes a means to transmit. No matter the sensation provoked, the work will have already made sense, even if it lasts only a second. The British painter David Hockney said that the intention of art is to share and that every artist should bring something closer to people, an experience, a thought. Every work makes an impression on the observer; to give it up would be like doing away with the illusion, like reducing one’s means of self-expression.
I am currently sharing a studio in Madrid with another artist and a chef who has launched her own craft beer. We each work in our own project, but we have bound together and we share the space to provide artistic-gastronomic experiences to everybody who wants to visit us. It is a new form of showcasing, where you can see an art exhibition and enjoy a craft beer at the same time. People are really keen on the events we have had!
