TRÁNSITO
Its main purpose is to reflect a vital anxienty, a metaphor of the personal journey searching for the sense of one-self life. Across the wilderness, this inner trip is marked out with the unexpected, the cruelty, the beauty, the organic as well as the artificial. There is a deep fight trying to understand the absurdity of the human being and still keep on moving forward.

El tema principal abarca toda una inquietud vital que se ve reflejada en la metáfora del viaje y la búsqueda de uno mismo. A través de un territorio salvaje, se suceden encuentros con lo inesperado, lo cruel, lo bello, lo orgánico y lo artificial. Existe una lucha interior para conseguir avanzar y entender el absurdo de lo humano.

NEBÛLA
This is an emotional work, and in a way romantic as well, a way of seeing desolate landscapes populated by the mist. Places located halfway between the city and its periphery, blank spaces with an absolute absence of human presence, but full of memories for me, as an attempt to question my musings.
