In 2010 the art group "El Emperador Desnudo", which manages Al Marge. Espai d'art on the Mediterranean coast.

about the artist's works

My works are conceived as an abstract spatial structure where shapes, colours, lines, letters, numbers, geometric figures and figurative elements coexist. All of them treated in the same plane of importance. There is no definite theme, but, the human being is always present in my compositions. At first, I work automatically, then I look at the result. If I experience a little astonishment in what I perceive, I continue on that path. Only when I have not been aware of what has happened in the process do I know that the work is profound. The most important thing is to get deconcentrated so that my rational part does not take over the process. As Gandhi said: when the ego dies the soul awakens, it's not easy to keep my ego (reason plus feelings) out of the aesthetic experience, but it's the only way... I try to paint from the guts.
