    About the artist

    IN ART EVERYTHING IS WORTH IT! BUT NOT ALL VALID NOR IT WILL BE WORTH!

    Opening up new horizons for human experience has always been the main source of creative energy, both in science and in art. To inquire into 'something' apparently non-existent or invisible to others and to provide it with real presence has always been the natural mechanism to generate usefulness for "art objects".

    The Urinal (“Fountain" 1917), which appeared in the last century, instinctively “wanted to”, “changed to” and “confirmed to” this mechanism. If a work of art was a book before, for example, now it is an SMS, why not? Our selective memory is responsible of each and everyone. Sensory or intellectual pleasure remains real.

    Movement makes time visible, is the formal change. Distinguishing the terms: "things" of "events", "mobility" of "immobility", "time" of "timelessness", "to be" or "to become", my attention is focused on the "space-time" time. Temporality of the space, relativity of "the whole” and recurrence of the time in the life cycles are the target of my experiments and determine the nature of my work.

    The art of today is a great laboratory for research, and that is so.And I´m here as well... and I´m turning to you.
