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.
I don't know if can talk about one piece or part of. I think that you can understand the sense or intentions of the images in an exhibition. Is a scenes work, with a strong narrative link. A non lineal narration, hyper-fragmented in time and space. It's multi-references and iconography are communitarian points, is one of the various possible sequences of reading. The piece has it's playful nature appealing to diffuse references like generating rules in this playful environment. This field is a state, a like if other states, both form it's image, reference, materialism. A like if that also express it self like it is.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I don't think that there is a specific way for reading an image, I think in levels of reading. Different instances which allows a shapes game, sayings and senses. What I pretend is an interaction game, of relation, generate bridges between this different levels where the viewer, co-author (if the figure of the author, like it means traditionally, has the relevance pretended for him by the viewer) could construct from his partiality and point of view the best way he like. The work is not even a craving random determination, it has readings and this readings are chained in an intellectual and emotional intelligence. The idea of bridges between levels, pretends any entry to an inventions, analogies space, constructions in a spiral process to it's interior. I'm not interested in public as spectator, I'm not interested into passivity inside a relation with the piece, I try to call to a dialog.
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?
I understand the intention of the referents and categorization, I just don't understand it in my work. Different looks have place in my work, for some moments I would say that its extremely classic, renaissance in its way of work, baroque in its shape, pop in its image, romantic in its theme, just for saying silly things, nothing of this is usable, or everything. Is this about the different levels that I've already mentioned. I cant chew it and I don't want to. Is not my work, not in a written way. By the other hand I think there is a immense fan of artists. People that is passionate for that and this is what comes to surface inside a mediocrity, meanness and snobby sea. The artists pass through the works stays, speaks. I have serious doubts about time passing resistance in things that I have seen this lasts years.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
Not all of the ones that I believe like significants ends being that and vice versa. Another mystery, that in a big way I prefer it to keep being like this. No progress on both also over the light like darkness allows it.
