I Don’t Know (March 2020)
Acrylic on wood
60 cm diameter
We think we know, but I personally think we never really know if what we know is true as a fact. This piece represents how the infinity of knowledge in this universe shocks us and how new information surprises us. There is always space for being astonished by new information. Becoming aware can be scary, but necessary and it’s something that time forces us to do, it’s the circle of life. The facial expression was greatly influenced by Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream.
Fear? (October 2020)
Recently I've been developing more fears; fears I never thought I would've had like airplanes; when they shake I honestly get a little nervous.
The time I drew this piece it was a time where the airplane was really shaking so I started to reflect on the concept of fear, how it controls not only our physical reactions but also the psychological impact it has on us and society. The technique of layering colours is present only in the eyes and the composition is casual because it was made in a moment of fear.
Barcelona (September 2020)
Colours hide deeper meaning and their union can give life to shapes that can be interpreted by the viewer. In this piece, layers of different colours come together to make a face. This work was based on a realistic image, a photo of me this summer, where heads and spirits flout in another dimension, where we have time to make our soul float in our thoughts and come to conclusions, or maybe not. Inspired by Andre Derain especially from his Portrait of Matisse.
Plate of Fruit or Not? (January 2021)
Acrylics on canvas
I started with my past pieces to experiment with the painting technique of layering colours to create the final face or portrait. I wanted to try to change the format and apply this painting technique on an object. In this case fruit, with fresh and bright colours contrasted by the blue background. This piece was inspired by Lesya Rygorchuck and Anna Songhust, for their perfect shading in the representation of objects.
Hippy Blues (October 2020)
Colours have different shades, every shade represents a different point of view.
With this piece I just wanted to deliver soft irrational vibes. The smoke just seems to complete the vibe and gives that hippy touch to the image, the glasses are a symbol of how he’s seeing the world from many different shades and considering all options, at the same time, taking his time and doing it his way. This piece wasn't inspired by any specific artist but rather from the general musical knowledge I have of the 70s.
One Tone (March 2021)
Ceramic, acrylic and wood
50 x 50 x 12 cm
This punch was originally, just a simple punch. After several reflections and options, I decided to simply leave it a simple punch but give it the right attention and touch of art by levelling it up and colouring the entire structure in black. Modern artists such as Fabio Vale inspired me to take something simple and manage to make it original and give it personality.
Layer Dress (December 2020)
151 x 50 x 36 cm
This piece is an artistic outfit. The dress is sectioned in layers of denim jeans of different shades with a belt and neck made out of fake red leather. The concept is that many think that denim is just one thing, one color but it’s not. Life is one thing and we think we have it all clear in our head but we don’t. The technique and shape of the dress were all inspired by different fashion designers.
