I have been developing my craft for more than 20 years. It is based in
reappropriation of the painting style used in the Middle Ages and
Renaissance. I don't consider my technique as secondary to my work,
but rather I see it as a support to the beauty and, perhaps, the
source of its grandeur. The attention to technique creates a series of
openings into an imaginary. It is at once realistic and mysterious.

It is through the materials, the thought and inspiration and then the
incarnation, that my humble work is created. My interest in organic
arises from my aesthetic orientation, which led me to study easel
paintings, authentic frescos and mural paintings. In this case,
through the simplicity and the banality of an unobtrusive and leafless
fruit, I believe the paintings become an expression of the universal
in the particular.

Revisiting old artistic themes and myths is also a way in which I
attempt to stop linear time imposed on man by a system of
that negates the microcosm and the macrocosm: undoubtedly a Don
Quixote-like effort, but one that is necessary nonetheless.
