SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT THE DRAWINGS


The series i am working on now, started with the work satyrically titled:"Behind the bush", depicting a penis, a boat, and posing  bodybuilders, behind a mass of tangled branches


It is actually a symbolic self-portrait, made out of elements, that define my work, my sexuality and my mental 
world, as always being awed by big boats, bodies, buildings, cities.


The tangled branches and the swirling ribbons want to add a notion of movement. An elegant chaos that softens with its constant curves the brutality of the different volumes, unifying them at the same time, in terms of form as well as conceptually.


The major element, the ship is a symbolic interpretation of our head, our thoughts, the journey of the human spirit through the endless sea of the possibilities.


Also the small drawings with the baby and the zeppelin, the people observing the lungs and heart with the microscope and the bodybuilder with the sharks, are placed in the ships cabin. 
This is their staging, their scenic space.


Alike the ship is divided into cabins, the same way we arrange the thoughts in our head, images in secluded spaces, pleasant thoughts that we want easily to recall, unpleasant thoughts that we keep hidden and we don’t want that they stick up suddenly, everything is our head, the ship that takes us to a journey in the depths of history, gazing the horizon of our future, the decay and the new beginning. 


I don’t use colour. I see my work as a registration of a dream. A transedent world, where the ideas become images. The drawing itself carries its own charge.
