ABOUT THE ARTIST

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work consists mainly in generating images by making two different processes interact randomly: the repetition of visual patterns that have been generated in a mechanical and analog fashion, and the modification of those patterns through the application of visual logics that aim to deconstruct and humanize process and outcome.

The origins of these patterns are varied: programming code, the geometry of ancient cultures, demographic and topographic schemes, fractals or optical effects, and much more. They are subjected to interventions typical of gestural analog painting, which incorporate a stronger deconstructive impulse.

The random interaction and superposition of both processes aims to create an ambiguous image that invites reflection on the boundaries between figure and background, order and accident. It’s an attempt to generate rhythms that break apart irregularly, and to create tensions and areas of rest. Symbolically, it appears to be related to the constant contradictions of contemporary life, where the ways in which digital and analog interact constantly transform our understanding of nature and what is natural.
