About my artwork
My work shows a reality in subjective terms, where values assumed to be absolute are questioned as a form of resistance. The closest reality, the everyday, is shifted; it totters, calling into question its initial value within a set of established orders; a new interpretation of all that is common..

I normally alter architectural codes and regulations to generate new places in a poetic key; they are fictions, endorsed under scientific forms. I make use of shared knowledge systems to transfer them to a personal dimension, something that entails shuffling to then rearrange, breaking up tothen recompose, evincing the absurd in that which appeared to be certain.

I give mayor importance to the imaginary and the sinuous in the mental composition within the space, enabling multiple compositional structures. It is the spectator who is in charge of arranging, composing and designing according to what is told, shown or described; an abstract arrangement system is thus created from assumed languages.

The route thus takes us from the regulated and the systematic to the hazardous and the poetic, putting the scientific model in crisis. Works that seek to evince the complexity of our contexts, immersing themselves in a labourious state of mutation where relations are established between real environments and fictionalised environments.
