My thematic subjects deal with the complexities and the characteristics of the human condition. They are an appealing part of my plastic language that relates the forms with its environment. My goal is to give meaning to that integration. I like to experiment and transform surfaces, to invert the scale of proportions and to find an aesthetic balance shaping the space with textures and unconventionalisms. I demand of myself a coherent compromise and a commentary of social criticism. I like to explore new materials that may require the total renewal of my personal established processe.I believe to have an open mind that regards the acceptance of the principles ruling freedom of expression .
