‘En el Jardín de las Hespérides’
The garden of the Hesperides is an imaginary place where golden fruits that provide immortality grow. The Hesperides, or nymphs, are in charge of guarding this mythological Eden, although they too fall into the temptation of longing for eternity.
Inspired by this story of an unreal place that speaks of the weakness of the human being, of the inexorable passage of time, I present my most recent work. It is a journey to reflect and awaken our emotions through a work where the collage technique with old and used fabrics coexists in harmony with others made with acetates, paper, or resins. These different techniques have the same objective, to transmit an active and silent message.
The use of graphics and colour become the guiding thread of a work composed of layers or levels of textures and transparencies. It is in itself, the depth, the inexistence of limits, the plasticity of a work that exhales luminosity, where the matter merges with the pictorial chromatism, resulting in a complex and at the same time harmonious symbiosis with a personal code that offers content of both conceptual and reflective values.
A painting that communicates through the emotion provoked in the observer and that keeps that secret that makes it unique and unrepeatable.
