Project5

My work is the result of a process of inner exploration, an existential adventure. My source of inspiration: always from within, giving free rein to the imagination and giving way to landscapes sublimated by my mind. It's like navigating an endless river with an unknown destination. Painting for me, is a way of being (and thinking) to which I dedicate a great deal of time and in which I have been working for many years.

Initially, I conceive the idea in my imaginary of chimerical dreamscapes, recreating in a dystopian world a vision of the possible future that awaits our plant and our species, in which I often pause to reflect on the destructive behaviour of human beings and in which I also often find myself struggling against a society that refuses to listen…

"It produces immense sorrow to think that nature speaks while the human species does not listen." - Victor Hugo

In my compositions over these last two years (the work that I present here), I use oil, acrylic and digital art as paining media. All works produced with digital techniques are subsequently manually enhanced by me with acrylic paint. Digital works are printed with 12 pigmented inks on canvas or Hahnemühle heavy weight, museum quality paper. The entire production process is carried out in my own workshop, from the digital creation, the printing of the work and the manual embellishing of the same right up to the assembly in a frame or on other support materials.

"Recent technology has given us the possibility to do things at the speed at which the artist thinks" - Bill Goldston

The work I present is the expression of a parallel world in which I live together with my characters, always willing to share with and offer the observer the opportunity to abstract, ramble, to let go… or else encourage them to think and maybe thus expose the incomprehensible alignment and loss in which rational people live… It all depends on how "the mood of the observer" contemplates the work.

BOSCHLAND -El Bosco's route to the present day-

The exhibition "Boschland - El Bosco's route to the present day -" is a collection of mixed-media works on canvas, which is largely based on approaching through my own pictorial interpretation the work of El Bosco, his time and ours. The collection was exhibited for the first time at the Orfila gallery in Madrid in 2017.
