STATEMENT OF WORK


In the last few years, my work has focused in the frontiers of painting
and its possibilities. 

Beyond the conventional and formal techniques, I seek new ways that
integrates to the process in a reflection around the pictorial, to what is
known as painting. Painting as a discipline that goes beyond preparing a
canvas or a paper to apply pigments, but expands transcending the
traditional limits.

In my most recent job, I focus on the relationship between the painting
and the space that contains it which leads me to assume my paintings and
drawings as objects, which opens a new perspective towards the
three-dimensional, converting into sculptural pieces what used to be
paintings but keep preserving pictorial parts as vestiges of what used to
be two-dimensional elements. In the body of the artwork where geometry is
of prime importance, an exploration of space occurs from the compositions
that are based on the shape and the color. Then it’s no longer about
presenting pieces placed in a harmonic way in a place but in how they
relate with the site affecting or altering the environment that receives
them according to their distribution, installation or even illumination
questioning the limits of the technique.

The artwork stands out for its economy of means and minimalist appearance.
