About my work

Using a restricted palette, I create scenes, characters, and symbols, which together make a work of associations, fragmented in the space. The scenes and characters get eliminated from the places where they belong, through visual deconstruction and abstraction, deliberately eliminating or minimalizing the background into black and white spaces or abstract shapes. This opens doors to new interpretations. I am inspired by Spanish and Catalan culture, history and politics. Violence and Power are topics that intrigue me.
