My work is an aesthetic search where geometry and perspective take shape through a contrast of elements that create a dynamic form, where light gains the upper hand.
I like to think of my art as a search, as an input, ultimately as a visual proposal. I create forms through the use of symbolism and archetypes, let them turn into instruments of abstraction, food for thought and an immediate meeting point between the subject and the object.
Through observation it is possible to shape reality and turn it into a game where everyone can express their inner child.
