Artwork Statement

"FÁBULAS" is a series of works that speak to us in a figurative sense, developed as a symbolic representation of absence as a concept and manifest of an emerging reality. They assume positions as patterns from the formal and conceptual. They propose to reevaluate the dialogue with the past, present and future from a self-referential sensitivity. Given the circumstances and conditions, we could say that they are a mirror of time. Each event triggers a storm, a bit of the butterfly effect. These notions or qualities are alluded to by devices of creative intermittence: family, memory, ideals, freedom, existential narcissism are a laboratory of impulses. Stereotypes and their conceptualization are being registered a little, the need to alert systems of archetypal representations seen in a subjective context, enhanced by the crisis.
