The themes that are recurrent in my work are insects, celestial bodies and portraits; the later becoming the spectators and metaphorical meeting point between the other two worlds.
Recently I have focused on the portrait series “Personal Universe”, which is inspired by anonymous characters and memories of people stored in our subconscious throughout our lives and the idea that sometimes while awake and other times during our dreams, these anonymous visitors will be recalled by our minds to interact and influence our story once again. Lately I have found myself very connected to this concepts and ideas, which makes the production of these pieces be very organic and visceral.
