As Jackson Pollock said, painting has a life of its own. In my work I try to provoke, through a random process, that the work emerges as something alien and that at the same time it is a reflection of my personality. I rarely have a clear plan of the result I am looking for. I must be attentive to the images that I provoke and recognise intuitively and unconsciously those that in some way satisfy me. To do so, I make the necessary changes, destroying and adding elements, favouring this process that happens naturally and in which I intervene in a limited and respectful way. Although abstract forms and figurative elements often coexist in my paintings, I always try to express feelings, seeking timelessness and the independence of the work with respect to references to a concrete reality.
