Ricardo Cuevas, presents a series of works created over the past 3 years exploring the relationship between language and images as a form of questioning the concept of representation. This works, plays upon the disappearence of text as a conceptual point of departure to question established language and communication codes. Ricardo Cuevas uses text as a conceptual universe where the duality between the visible and invisible is a fundamental stepping stone for the creative process. Misunderstandings, loses in translation and fragmentated messages are constant tools in the developing of his work.
