What to say about my artwork? I do not find it easy to analyze it, may be a good beginning, any serious analysis is not easy, and I do not also feel myself capable to elaborate a theory about my task, it is not my job, I feel like -and it gratifies me more- to be a performer. I know that on a white canvas, I enjoy enormously to provoke on it a sort of invasion, very free and wild, to the best style of “action painting” where I can download with power and confidence colors and forms that I did not know even myself just a moment before I could do, to incur from different angles, and to see little by little what it begins to appear at “random”. After the pause, a moment of quietness observing what is there, until in some sector emerges a shape, a color or a combination of both that seduces me, that suggests me a theme and I begin to think how to integrate the rest of the artwork to that shape. The searching of that integration, most of the time provokes other shapes and sectors to appear which I feel interesting and they finally end covering the original idea, so is that many times I find myself painting and repainting the same artwork once again. When a harmony emerges from the whole, it is after putting the finishing touches to that “rough stone”, that same rough stone that as well as our being can always be improved and polished in its most pronounced edges. After so much display, in a moment I feel a state of infatuation over the artwork, “delighted” for it … and it is at this point that one should let the most objective judge to get in, the time. Many times I discover that that “wonder” has lacks here and there and when trying to correct them … I have to begin once again. Sometimes I think “this artwork is much better than I can paint” and if days go over –and this feeling persists- that infatuation turns into a peaceful joy to contemplate what is done and it is me, who is the first surprised one by the result. I try the artwork to awake an emotion in me, a feeling, a smile or peace when observing it, and when this does not happen, frustration, anger and a wish of destroying everything appear, summing up, the most dark and violent side of oneself. I believe here it is the synthesis of my job, something that is not new in the human being, negative can be transformed into positive. It is not easy. I chose painting.
