Metaphysical painting in his bodies-objects
I develop fragmented figures with a certain degree of sculptural rigidity, they are heavy shapes, volumetric forms, accompanied by sterile and desolate environments. The use of neutral gray color palettes with discordant full planes in primary colors, isolate the figures. The spacing structures incorporated into the background plan complete the work of art. I recreate timeless figures, without ideological, religious references or specific social issues. All symbolic or narrative content, every idea or cultural feature is obliterated. These bodies-objects are built to be able to deconstruct us, take distance from ourselves, from our stories and objectively contemplate the reality. Removing the human figure from the usual contexts which give it a meaning challenge us because we stop recognizing ourselves. In this way, with my artistic work, I try to make a metaphysical approach.
