  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    This art(work) belongs to a portrait series that were born through concerns produced by a closeness to medicine from an early age. As a result of this approach, an interest in the body, anatomy, the condition and sensations that a human being presents when being close to death arises in me. To try to answer those concerns I began to resort to those images that these open bodies and faces projected, bruised and exposed to their cavities while I stopped at the viscosity, color and textures they presented.

    That approach provoked in me a strong relationship between attraction and repulsion, between the beautiful and the ugly. And it is this ambivalence between the beautiful and the horrifying, between the hidden and the exposed, the intimate and the shared, the desired and the feared, that appears in this series of portraits, with immeasurable force instigating the viewer's sensitivity hitting him with his assimilated reality but also with the rejected one.

    The one for which he did not allow himself to inquire and for which any hint of liking was a reflection of the individual's perversion. Through a treatment with a particular accent on the visceral and a personal earthly morbidity, I generate an approach to an imprecise, daring, informal and almost abstracted figuration that gravitated in a deep cube of absolute freedom and frenzy of artistic possibilities.
