Vision of art
1. Choose a work that represents you, describe it in relation to its format and materiality, its relation with time and space, its style and theme; detail its production process.
This work, like the rest, starts from the constant quest of creating characters to tell stories with only one image that contains within itself the past and future of its protagonist. Always starting from a drawing, which serves as a guide to sort what I'm doing. This is a tool that has been fundamental to work for a long time; very few things are left to chance once the idea is arisen.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
As the square of a comic, or the frame of a film: trying to imagine how this situation has come out and where it will end.
3. In reference to your work and your position in the national and international art fields, what tradition do you recognize yourself in? Who are your contemporary referents? What artists of previous generations are of interest to you?
Avedon, Mondino, Erwin Olaf, Erwin Wurm, Gregory Crewdson, Moebius, Miyazaki, Quino, Frank Miller, the list can be endless.
