Abstract: Born on the border between matter and energy, from the interaction of fire with metal, my people define themselves in the light of intuitions, of the spark that generates expressive volumetric structures. They bear both my fingerprint and the one of those who look at them.
I intend to review the themes approached throughout my artistic career by emphasizing the influence of materials and objects on the resulting shapes. I will also present the different ways of treating a shape if we consider its destination, be it a monumental sculpture or a work intended for the indoor setting.
