February – March, 2020
My current work is focused on sculpture/installation creation. The fundamental objective is to produce an aesthetic encounter, a new corporeal experience between the spectator and his environment. The experience intends that the viewer detaches himself from his particular and concrete visual reality to make way for the proliferation of other senses. To a new reflective vision between the viewer and their surrounding world.
My work is made from industrial materials and conceived from a muscular sense. Above all, it is crossed by a haptic sensitivity in combination with the eye, which emphasizes materiality, proportion and weight, all elements that govern the materials I use. The view stimulates and invites the other senses to participate. It incorporates and even reinforces other sensory modalities such as muscular or tactile, determining aspects of my work.
The work fundamentally touches on issues of visual perception, environment and harmony of materials, and even proportion. Let the sense of materiality, plasticity, and gravity lead to sensory proliferation. My particularity of order, structure, weight, detail and craft contributes to the creation of a visual paradigm that emerges the emotional participation of the observer, taking into account both his conscious intentions and his unconscious ways. The objective of all this creative process is the emergence of a plastic and spatial experience anchored in an existential base, from which the viewer projects himself as the creator of his own experience.
