My work is an ongoing research regarding the depiction of reality through pictorial language. The models I use are partake of the direct relationship and everyday experience with the images that surround me. These models can be associated to “archetypical” images; images that are easy to recognize. In my work I use a specific methodology that relates to the materials used for each series. In other words, my interest is presenting the material and symbolic charge of the surface, which also obtains a new meaning as it is also a pivotal part of the image. This originates a symbiotic relationship between image and surface. In this way my work intends to constitute a visual reflection on reality and its perception.
