“The abstractions present in my projects are my hommage to nature, on which we depend. We humans are the symbol of the current of past, present and future, and the consequence of life’s long journey. We keep moving forward and that energy is beyond the flow of time.
I believe that there is a kind of collective unconscious that is part of our subconscious and, from time immemorial, of the forgotten memories of ourselves. Interest in topics as intense as life and death flourishes through encounters with microscopic and eccentric realities that are hidden by the familiarity around us.”
