My works are based in a architectural urban drawing and color using the
A personal lenguage expressing it with different resources ;
Drips of Acrylic paint , Grid of lines using ink pencil and correct pen over dark surfaces,
Papers selected from art, photographs or fashion magazines .
With all this elements i create a sort of compositions based in the idea of Maps Collages ,
Panoramic urban landscapes or architectural structures that i see constantly in the city.
The City narratives and its system of inner transformation such as its human component are aesthetically and discursively represented in my work.
In the works a sense of non-territoriality seems to clash with the Maps, places and patterns which preceded the rapid expansion Practices and its advanced and modern traces which begun to take place in the beginning of the 20th Century. Such traces replaced the Nineteenth-Century Model of cities such as Paris, as an example, to make reference of an inescapable model such as Santiago’s Structures, and more so for initiating relations between local and global. Such tradition, the
Architecture of the 19th Century, has been suspended in History by Modernism not only in architecture
But in the visual arts as well, which is where the work indicates the movement of urban and aesthetic structures through the paintings.
In today’s world the edification scene is a spectrum that varies rapidly in time, which calls for adaptation and mutation. Because of a series of belligerent, political and economical reasons, cities have experimented structural changes, in a contract with powerful conventionalities such as agreeing and belonging to the globalized world. notice the rhythm, the speeding urban process, create a visual proposal which distances from evidence and emerges from traces, lines, colors and stains, a personal vision about time and space variations reflected in today’s urban structures.
