Artist Description
«I dream of instruments obedient to my thought and which with their contribution of a whole new world of unsuspected sounds, will lend themselves to the exigencies of my inner rhytm» (Edgard Varčse).

Art owns the absorbing power to describe mind. Sound is a substance disposable to surprise comprehensiveness. In music, impulses sometimes without precise directions provide evidence to feeling.
Sensitive usufruct proposes mental wander, meets inner needs, persuades cognitive meanings and surprises self-awareness. Music is a reliable indicator of our subjectivity. The fruit is the work. The quality of the fruit reflects the merit of the worker. Like the waters of a river, music knows where to flow but does not know why.
Instruments exercise an influence upon the hearer because they speak an emotional idiom; communicate the motions of imagination, the ways how the composer and the interpreter were culturally modelled. Particular and collective references echoes in music like erratic images of experience. Musical sounds represent change, moments of a process of human permanence and transformation. An interaction between striving elements, ready to integrate inexplicable connections, ready to compel dynamism of reaction by searching failures of understanding. Solutions are possibilities because all possibilities are a necessary potential of operation.
Between a pragmatic and intuitive approach, these compositions are an exploration and combination of hypnotic qualities of natural sounds, engendering a certain incantatory energy and perceptive ambiguities. Circuits or non directional trajectories seek attributes from an endless disposability to shift, interchange and unpredictability.


Occasional notes about my images (see Photos):
My images are uneasy to define by words, are images that throw thoughts into confusion or into disorder. I try to elaborate compositions that renounce clear meanings, forms that reject transparency, alienated by multiple allusions. Like remains of intentions, my images enhance and explore formal collaborative influences, puzzling and unexpected associations, unpredictable connections, shifting margins, sudden surprises and streams of arbitrary order. I try to maintain aesthetic incommodity and instability in the mind of the viewer. Even if we find something recognizable (heads, bodies, buildings, landscapes), it must be felt as something that cannot break the paradox of human thinking, a perplexing brain process only capable of releasing more or less plausible and persuasive simulacra. The recognizable does not pretend to evocate concrete memories. Comes forth enigmatically as an unpredictable mimetic accident, a particular decision of a demanding mind in which immense groundless assumptions are potentially disposable. I understand these works as consequences of a creative stratagem with no previous established ideas, with no previous certainties, as searches, discoveries and surprises raised into view during shaping and modelling, resisting to clear explanations. Loosing convincing realistic impact, identifiable forms are felt as opened, uncertain, deceiving and polyvalent. Synaesthetic, holistic, transversal, void of obvious significances, forms suggest a sponge quality, a natural aptness to absorb, to be receptive and reactive to every stimulus. Insinuate an anxious tendency to experiencing transmutation, are grasped by a disposition to fusion, overtaken by a propensity to osmosis. Like clouds, do not seem to be anything more than a morphological existence desirous to be imbued, inclined to permeability, to mutation, to blurring, to casual transfigurations, to heterogeneous cohesion. Bodies, architectures and landscapes are submitted by a creative process in which are caught by luxurious tensions, compressions, intersections, multiple allusions, satisfying a sensuous need to find a configurative outcome, a quest for different manners to find incomprehensibility of feeling and of thought.


A Hindu legend narrates that, in a remote era, all men were bearers of divine powers. However, their frequent abuse of the detained ability excited Brahma's anger. The mighty God decided to punish the misuse of the capacities by suppressing and concealing them in a place where certainly men at no time could imagine finding out. He hid their powers deep inside themselves. Since then, man does not cease to try to discover outside something that is locked within him.
