ARTIST STATEMENT

My sculptures are unsetting, disturbing.  Sometimes they cause a feeling of unease, as if they seemed too much unreal within the routine character.

In most of them the reality is caught by surprise, creating a surreal and peculiar universe plenty of stunning situations because of its ridiculousness or the unexpected finals. Human expressions and human figures are the main subject in my artworks. They´re all common and imperfect people, apart from any canon of beauty, who are photographied within surprise, stress, fear or desperation.

I am inspired by accidents or daily mishaps and human reactions to those situations, that will sound familiar to many people.

All my artworks include a discordant color part which breaks the chromatic harmony and stand as the expected element of surprise. 

The title of each piece, created as an advertising headline, come full creative circle and is the key to understand the final meaning.
