My works evoke the intrinsic calm in disaster. Sort of post apocalyptic fictions that overlays of existing icons –architectural, artistic, historical- and mythologies allowing to imagine a present within a future.  There’s a recurrent concern to remark and question the abysmal gap between humans and the environment, particularly in the idealization of nature from its most impressive features: the ferocity, the uncontrollable, its purity.

I pretend to recreate in my drawings and installations, through craftsmanship and an aesthetic that contrast between the thorough, highly detailed and complex to coarse, precarious and simple aspect, the imminent fractures and possible implosions of the structures of establishment in a poetic way.
