In my works I consciously explore the privilege of being able to appreciate and document existence from a painter’s perspective.
Life is ephemeral by nature, starting with the fact that each person’s life is such an unlikely miracle that it is almost impossible.
What was the probability that my lineage remained intact since human existence and I was born? Almost none. And what was this same probability about the woman in my painting? Almost none neither.
Therefore, almost like within a state of dreaming or a vague memory, I depict the existence of the woman of my life in an attempt to represent the underrepresented and to visualize the invisible on a canvas that shall live forever.
I am drawn to survey the relationship between construction and deconstruction as an allegory of overcoming traumatic experiences. When I moved back to Spain after living in London for many years I felt I had to start building up my life over again. This situation made me feel extremely vulnerable and unstable, as in a matter of a two hours flight, everything changed. The only thing it didn’t were my closest friends and family. Through an extorted reality, I play with forms in a figurative context to evoke a feeling of change. The background, having a collage-like appearance, interacts with the figure painted hyper-realistically. The figure is well defined and detailed, reflecting the importance this person has to me. I only paint women that I know, therefore, the level of devotion I have for them can be appreciated on the canvas. Painting can be incredibly isolating, but painting the women of my life, helps me to transcend this barrier and enhance my connection with them.
