about I investigate the relationship between people and the environment that surrounds them, focusing my work on the subject of cities, which is prominent in my production.
There are places, such as the interior parts of train stations, underground stations, airports and squares, defined as the main “non-places” in a city by sociologist Marc Augè, with big streams of people who do not really meet every day.
They are spaces set for multiple uses, anonymous and stereotyped where the frenzied impermanence is emphasized by maps in the background, which can be interpreted as destinations to reach.
Through a color range of expressionist inspiration the portrayed figures appear as being without identity and immersed in solitude determined by the short passage between the tracks and the exteriors.
I describe through painting the concept of speed arising from the rhythm of our times, using a metropolitan landscape which he previously visited and photographed in person. I convey on canvas my own experience as a tireless traveller.
My pieces of art aim to show the present and be an active part of it, by immersing in the rhythm of society, they go beyond the result of working only in a studio.
