VIEW IN MY ROOM
The painting belongs to a series that began in 2012 in which investigated the relationship of the materials that I do the work and its connection to space. The color and the lines are missing and have been replaced by the three-dimensionality that provide the intrinsic characteristics of the materials used and their interaction with light. The shadows generated and present volumes allow to show the bowels of a canvas that has not only surface but also expanded the space dimension showing the inside of the work. That interior is generated by the construction process itself, where the eight lines that compose, screws and metal eyelets that allow their subjection, are also part of the work. This work is in a exhibition until july.

I'm a visual artist from Spain, now living and working between two places, Barcelona and Vilalba (Lugo). I am interested in working with the structural elements of painting to create an image that extends beyond the frame edges. I use the wall as a large canvas on which I place in different media and formats to take advantage of specific space characteristics.The painting in this way makes the viewer see the wall as a part of it. At this moment I have two projects in progress: The first one called "Drawing" is a project where I use different kinds of paper and foam board to make pictures without using traditional drawing materials. I draw different ideas and structures drawn with a fine needle.Sometimes I draw with white and black thread and an invisible nylon too. In the second project called "Light", I use LED lights in the pictures, to create paintings to make a dialogue with the space in which the different shades of light creates an extension of the picture outside the frame. Wood frames, foam board on the surface and light within the painting, are the three basic elements that used to work. I believe that a picture is better than words.
