For more than two decades, I’ve been developing a work cross-disciplinary that alternates photography, painting, sculpture and digital processes. The questioning of the limits of pictorial medium, using sculptural elements and the rupture of the traditional frame of Painting, is a constant in my work. And it is from the beginning of the new century when you can observe a whole series of new methodologies and creative processes that lead to paintings sometimes sinuous and synesthetic, other geometric and at the same time organic. In its origin we find the articulation of the line and the plane playing with the concepts of deconstruction, symbiosis, the reference to the most elementary biological processes, overlapping color fields or the folding of the surface.

EDUCATION AND TEACHING EXPERIENCE
