The aim of being an artist is to have an impact. If you create, you should influence the way people evolve globally.
My art connects you. My art connects you with nature. My art connects you with your essence.
At three years of age, I drew a huge sun on a wall of my parents’ house, and I have been creating ever since. Born in Granada, it is the sun and the sea that gives me the energy that you see reflected in my life not only as an artist, but also as a human being.
ABOUT MY SCULPTURES…
My research aims to find a balance between volume, shape and space underlining emptiness instead of mass. Inspired by Brancusi, I too continually seek the essence of life through organic lines and forms. These organic shapes drawn in the air, like an ethereal calligraphy, and subtly playing with texture, color and the ever-changing reflections caused by the light.
The combination of both classical and avant-garde materials, like steel, brass, aluminum and Krion (acrylic stone) and carbon fiber allow me to articulate inside and outside spaces with different levels of intimacy.
My sculptures are like a spiral: they move upwards suggesting both physical and mental growth and ideas of pureness and asceticism through a minimal objectual presence. In this sense, the interaction with the viewer is important as they become part of the sculpture and engage in a challenging introspective dialogue in which they can recognize themselves.
I have always felt attracted by the monumentality of Anish Kappor, the essentialism of Donald Judd and the atmospheric installations of James Turrell. They all served as inspiration to articulate a dialectics of eternal and ephemeral, empty and full, light and darkness.
I feel that my artwork is a thought-provoking metaphor of the individual and our quest for freedom, emancipation and self-fulfillment.
ABOUT MY DESIGNS…
I design sculptures with functionality, inspired by nature, and created under Mies Van der Rohe´s premise “less is more” where the organic lines provide an essential natural beauty that emotions you and connects with yourself. All my creations have their own soul, they are pieces of art that you can enjoy and express a duality inherent in everything that exists.
Some of the design pieces, like the Ginkgo or the Coral Reef, are directly copied from nature in cast metal. Although it seems to have nothing to do with my design style as seen in my other works, they are the emotional base and meaning of my signature, with simple, elegant and organic shapes. I also love to create my own jewelry and summer dresses, and everything is connected to nature.
I work with sculptors and artisans to craft each piece because they have a unique approach to work with each material and a perfect understanding of the production processes. Moreover, they contribute with their expert work, but more importantly, their own soul to each creation.
