I was born into a dimension where “Giorgio De Chirico” already existed, the Mona Lisa, the Impressionists, the Dadaist movement. Thus, I chose the limit of suggestion, mixing a little of my personal life with the intellectual, searching inside myself and others.
It was necessary to look internally and change spectators’ rational perception. In my oeuvre living things are absent, whereas inert or “fantastic” things are present. In this hyper-reality, the present, the past and the future coexist; one only has to look more deeply.
In my discourse all of this is possible, because poetics have always wandered the soul. This is my path; I don’t know if it’s original; it just is.
As you can see, for me our oneiric life, our essence, is fundamental; perhaps to sculpt nothingness, which has been very difficult to display in such a material world.
“I have discovered that I’m a terribly frustrated poet who deconstructs his poems in sculptures, lacking the understanding that words exist behind one another.”
