THE AIR: ascending lines that suggest flight. (2007 – 2009)
I develop the concept of air in stylized figures of ascending lines, a poetic vision of space (Dragonfly, Sleeping bird, Beak of the Condor, Scream…). The air circulates through open spaces and becomes part of the work itself. The flight symbolizes the ascension, the transcendence, the improvement of the human condition (Brancusi).

The MUTANTS (2012 – ) are aerial creatures who belong to the universe of childhood. They try to escape the earth and reach a marvellous world of fantasy. Nevertheless, despite their determination to connect to the mysteries of the universe, reality always prevails. The duality earth-air is visible in an ascendent movement, with stylised arms and legs, and wings elaborated with metallic waste.
ENVIRONMENTAL AND/OR METALLIC WASTE participate in the elaboration of my works (2009 – )
Metamorphosis I, II, II, IV, V; Gnome I F and Gnome I M; Pistil I and II; Alcion I and II; Inside, Outside, Graft, Submision I and II… Decaying nature is part of my work: decomposing plant elements, rusted objects…: they are the traces of passing time caused by wind, rain, soil or the human hand. I incorporate them into my sculptures so that they lose their vulnerability and become durable. Dcomposition halts. Passing time has been captured.

CONSTRUCTION ELEMENTS MERGE WITH NATURAL MATERIALS (2015 -.
Currently I am working with bricks. I transform this construction element and eliminate his symmetry and functionality in order to make it artistic. A) At the beginning I used a broken brick as a support for the sculptures.
- Flower of Evil. Bronze
- Dialogue. Bronze
- Intrusion. Bronze
B) Next the brick becomes an independent sculptural element. The line of symmetry is broken and the everyday object becomes a work of art and attains a new and different kind of beauty.

- Closed structure and bambú. Aluminium
- Open structure and pomegranates. Auminium.
C) At times, I introduce leaves or decayed pomegranates into the brick to create a dialogue between an architectural element, powerful, rectangular and masculine, and a plant, fragile and feminine. The pomegranate is a round, sensual element and it breaks the linear structure of the brick.
- Broken heart. Aluminium
- Deconstruction I. Aluminium
- Captive leaf. Aluminium

Destroyed homes and buildings are a sign of suffering and desperation wherein bricks carry a great emotional burden. I created a pendant to colaborate with the Spanish NGO Rescate which reconstructs homes, schools and hospitals in Siria.

Lately I am working with state-of-the-art technologies and using new materials more adapted to the idea I want to develop, considering the brick as a metaphor of the vulnerability and fragility of our lives. Here the brick reflect emotions, feelings, even suffering.
