Artist Statement

I consider dangerous to speak about images, when they display themselves by a slight whisper. Drawing has the ability to communicate with a simple and crude form. That’s why in recent years, my work has been focused mainly on this medium in an attempt to point out events, structures and joints so austere, with minimal mediums, like a simple graphite on paper or on the wall.

Drawings characterized almost by the exclusive use of the line, a line able of build grids or maps of the world I see, showing the inadmissible enclosement and transparentness atributes. The repetition and tracing are the way of construction of it. The insistent and intricate repetition of certain forms, which hopelessly clears the own meaning and at the same time leads to multiple or absurd readings.

Simultaneosly , by intuition I suspect that the drawings will lure the spectators eye. Perhaps, by the tenuous stroke will make them at first sight imperceptible. It is when the viewer approaches will appreciate the thread and then the picture will be unveil, without the need of words.
