// the cirle

Just like different surfaces, the inner self, the skin, and the external self look at each other, they interact,
they crash and change their position like in a frenetic dance, my works materialize.
Changing the point of view from outside to inside, the substance is dug in depth with human force,
with fierce tools, by living the work viscerally, perceiving at every heartbeat the blood that from each fiber of the body passes to every molecule of the substance.

Sometimes the photographic shot is is a symbolic base to tell a story: a taxi crosses its own reflection
in a window, changing the layers of what is real and what is visible, a girl runs on the beach throwing sand
grains in the airs, as if she was trying to free herself of something that is shaping around here.
Other times, the photographic paper is the physical layer, with its own peculiar frames that together
with color and substance become soil, or, through digging, scratching and scraping, releases a luminous
essence, a light that i shorn from the most intimate inside, creating trees, the epitome of spirituality and life.
