“My creative and vital processes are united, always in a constant reasearch of techniques and means through which I manage to express my emotions and feelings, deepening in my own language with selfcriticism and through a continuous introspective examination, which includes periods of great emotional stress. All the emotional charges, the memories, the objects collected in my surroundings, the lived processes, the words, the music and perceived images, configure my work, through successive phases and manifesting itself through painting, installations, video, photography, engraving and poetry. The research continues, the perseverance in the work, the open mind, the self-criticism, always being open to changes and the non-acceptance of the repetitive guidelines, constantly guide my work.”
