Much of my work begins with subjects related with death, with the strange, the sick, the pathological, the withdrawn from the common.
It appeals to the beauty that is within what strays from the mainstream taste, to the enjoyment of the morbid and the decadent, not because of a superficially provoking attitude, but because of the conviction that beauty does not have a fixed nor defined parameter, with every project being an attempt of making the reflection and direct contemplation of the human decadence sublime.
I play with the duality, with the metaphor, the beauty of what is “ugly”
