Statement

My visual research begins with the use of geometry through patterns that I organize into various grids. It establishes frames, directions and – finally – a certain order that helps me to define a workspace. I am interested in the diversity of opportunities that are generated in this space and as by means of these patterns and their repetition, I can transmit a dynamic movement. In the same way, my work examines what happens when transforming something two-dimensional into something three-dimensional, creating even more complex possibilities of actions.

 

Simultaneously and as a visual reference, a constant in my work is the cross with symbols of sacred geometry present in Latin American cultures as well as in ancestral civilizations from different parts of the world; From this image, I attempt to put into value something of my own, that reflects on the current worldview, networks and relationships, the existence, dimensions and the human scale in front of the natural universe.

 

Partially, as a reaction to the current protaganism of the digital image, I seek to reflect upon things by doing; and doing so via actions which require an extremely high level of manual precision. By working with geometry I am forced to adhere to the ratios and measurements of chosen shapes. However, I am also motivated to break with those restrictions exploring new forms and polygonal constructions where you proof the concepts of figure and background and also reality or fiction, from a perceptual experience in which the senses are involved and there is an active participation of the spectator being this and its reflection, an important part of the constitution of the works that are always changing and constantly moving.

 

At the same time it motivates me to work with diverse materials, granting them the greatest importance and thus, the material chosen would be the leading new research from its shape, structure, improvisation, chance and uncertainty of not having clarity many times of what happen.
