My work is more than an act of liberating the soul, I feel and hear deep emotion, almost like a whisper of the intangible. I create shapes and volumes where there the enigma of light emerges along with its shadow becoming a changing compositional element.
Venturing into abstraction, remaining, even for an instant, as an ephemeral reflection, transforming your gaze into an act of love and magic.
My early stages in art came about because of a search for expressing emptiness, which led me to experimenting with metal mesh until this became a means of expression, until transforming and considering it sculptural material. I rely on the space-light relationship and on the projected shadows that become changing compositional elements. My ethics are based on essentiality, and my aesthetics on diversity.
My research focuses on transformation as a guiding thread through continuous change where nothing remains the same, energy constantly actively destroying and creating, the unfathomable future and the changes occurring in the world of the one’s spirit when facing reality and the passage of time.
I work using sculptural abstraction and construction, both events and processes being relevant in the creation of my works, united partially with chance, with which I spontaneously correct and decide through dynamic action.
My aim is for my work to be self-explanatory, and for the beholder to feel affected and integrated, establishing a communication with a perceptive game and becoming a co-creator of the result of the final work in order to generate an artistic synergy.
The Trails Series talks about the times when you must make a vital decision and choose which path you want to follow. Every decision entails a world of sensations and experimentations that make you evolve internally. The chosen path is the appropriate one to know your primal essence as I consider that one’s Soul vibrates in the rhythm of love and freedom, and this leads to self-awareness and self-knowledge.
With the Jumble Series, I attempt to allude, through the metal threads, to the times in life when one loses a loved one and the circumstances that arise from that absence, when you do not know what to do, where to go, and you remain crucially suspended there. These are times for self-analysis, loneliness, mourning, sadness, distress.
I have used aluminium and steel as a thread to symbolise a core connection, at any level, be it spiritual, biological, social, etc., evoking Ariadne's thread, which is the agent connecting the centre of the labyrinth and guiding one from the world of darkness to the world of light.
The É – Panta rei Series is the result of a journey along “Trails” with the “Jumbles” of recent years, in which I have chosen to experience an inner transformation made from love and freedom to value the dignity of each individual, feeling that “everything flows, nothing stops” in this vital experience of continuous change.
