I think that trhough there are rules to follow in art, also I firmly believe that we have to invent our own rules, and constantly reflect it in our work. Regardless of what you think, that you should project in your Finish Work, Otherwise it would be difficult for anyone to understand them now or in the near future.This experience has guided me to follow a path of reflections, in which I have been able to capture my own emotions and follow the ideas I have in my mind. Precisely, since I boarded my first flight as a passenger of a commercial aircraft, changed my perspective on distance. From the micro to the macro and from the macro to the micro, this is how aerial views are born, and the Mappings, which are series based on aerial travel experiences, complemented with the pure geometry, the sacred geometry that is in nature and in the human being from his birth and before, and what I am feeling every day, in other words, my own experiences. I have been working in the last Years a series of Paintings, such as the aerial views, also called Mappings Series. I present them to you as my first letter of introduction.
