INTRODUCTION TO AUTHOR´S PROJECTS

​​The different themes matured in the last ten years, have given as fruit the creative production I now collected in this web. The iconography contained in them summarizes my impressions and expressions of our microcosm, unknown but very close.

An invisible reality of images and knowing. Our gaze, always hungry for new worlds, new spaces, new places to unwind our mind, where to find our essence and that helps us to reconcile us with the context of our lives.

Nature establishes channels to communicate with humans, sometimes too subtly for our limited perception. It does not conceal anything, and discovering its messages is only a matter of using the right tool and being able to decode its language.

Some messages remain hidden in these microspaces until we acquire the ability to see and decipher them for the first time. Loaded with inspiration, information, beauty, mysteries, uncertainty, and reflections, allowing to us to know about the cosmos, and know our selves.

The expressions of my creative projects mean an inner need to capture the thoughts and emotions generated by the cognitive and aesthetic process I undergo during  the passionate encounters with the microlandscapes.

Now I want to share my intimate vision of these tiny corners, expose them to other naked eyes, and incite the viewers dive into them.

In exhibition spaces my images, more inviting to visual enjoyment than to the elaboration of a discourse, want to provide a leisurely, and reflective but exciting walk through them.

Speaking of humans, their intimate nature, their place in the Universe, their science and technology, these narrations set out some relevant questions of our present and future.

Light is the main character and the indispensable partner in these photographs.

It writes the visual message from our microcosm through the whimsical interaction of photons with the microscope's lenses, and with the optical properties of the object.

Then my mind can see it, and interprets it in a pigment print that, when is contemplated, it is incorporated to the record of our stories and hysteria...

And it is stored as well in our frail memory.
