My concern arises fundamentally in relation to nature; I consider that I do not live in a homogeneous, static and empty space, but within a set of interrelated forms and phenomena, in that ground that sustains us there is an integrating unit that condenses morphologies and allows us to determine how we perceive and experience the world, this connection between perception and physical space is the landscape.
I am interested in understanding landscape through the representation of forms, I look for sculptural languages in nature and reflect on the qualities it acquires when subjected and delimited by the human eye, as well as on its physicality and the relations of order that these articulate. My investigations result in images and ideas that condense poetic gestures and intimate and fantastic encounters about the landscape experience.
