MY WORK

“Deconstruction”

Conflit is inherent to human beings. It is a consequence of our nature as a human condition. From this comes my interest in deepen thtough my work in the ambiguities, weaknesses and contradictions of the human being as an individual.

In previous series (" Shadows and Light"), I am inspired by images of nature, to reflect our disconnection with it. Forgetting that we are part of it and not the other way around.

Now, looking for a radically new vision with greater strenth, closer to feelings and emotions, I use the human figure, treating it in an abstract way. I representthe body as the "concept" I want to convey, and not as the figure itself. Therefore, to get more introspection, I decontruct its elements, head, arms, legs...giving rise to multiple possible reading, and demostrating that the apparent clarity of an image is usually not such.

With a realistic-figurative and conceptual style, and with the intention of stripping the creative process, I work with oil on linen, which, being visible, as if it were its skin, is part of the work.

                              

 “I underestand art as an introspection and as an intimate endeavor"

 

MY STORY

 

I studied Interior Architecture at the School of Decorative Arts in Madrid, working as a decorator until 2006, when I left the decoration to dedicate myself completely to painting.

Being self-taught, I begin exhibiting as an emerging artist at Sotheby's, as well as at the International Contemporary Art Fairs Montichiari, in Italy, or Artenin, in France, at the hand of Gaudí Gallery ( Madrid).

After 4 years exhibiting in galleries, fairs, public spaces and cultural centers, in 2010 I decided to retire temporarily and embark on a deep study of realistic technique.

For 5 years I enriched my technique with painters such us Poul Carvajal, a profound researcher who taught me to combine the most traditional technique of Renaissance painting of the Grand Masters with the latest technological advances applied to painting ( photography and airbrush). With his adrress Imade my first realistic exhibition in the USB Bank of Madrid. On the other hand, and due to my great interest in body expression, I decided to expand my studies with the realist painter Aldo Bahamonde who helped me to express the psychology of my characters through the humen figure. Later, I focused my interest in the portrait being Ismael Fuentes, a professor at the Arauco Foundation (Madrid).

 

In 2011, I was selected for participating at the "Francisco de Goya Art Chair" taught by the master Antonio López, who chooses one of my works to be part of the "Caja de Ávila" collection. In 2012 I was selected again to participate in the "Albacete Extraordinary Art Chair", also taught by the master Antonio lópez. In 2013, I made a painting workshop in the "Pons Foundation", in Madrid, with the realistic painter, Golucho. All these workshop gave me the opportunity to analyse my work and com out with very renewed ideas.

 

In 2015 I started working in the exhibition "Sombras y Luz", that I presented in june 2017 to closed circle of friends. One of the painting of this exhibition, "Impermanencia", was selected in March 2017 at the "Reina Sofía Painting Prize and Sculture", participating in the exhibition of the selected ones in Casa de Vacas of the Buen retiro Park in Madrid.

In May 2018, I started to be part of artists represented by the Luisa Catucci Gallery, located in Berlín.
