Artist Statement I think we are living in an illusion but sometimes we are “touched” from the other side of the veil by the “real reality”, the one that cannot be seen. Arts -when they achieve it- open some of those magic gates that help us get across the veil offering a glimpse to the other side via some kind of "poetic event". Making Art is a practice, a life exercise that requires craftsmanship as a foundation. I work on it to contribute my two cents to help "bringing Heaven to Earth". I use several disciplines such as Music, Film, Drawing…. Creativity is an attitude, a view about things even before those things may belong to any specific discipline. Where are their boundaries when you see everything in all? This specific proposal, working with Ink and Watercolours on Japanese handmade paper, started on 2014, feeling like a good story about to unfold. It’s an exploration across Drawing -without a previous drawing, Painting -in a different way- and partly a certain awareness of the brush strokes as in oriental Calligraphy. A Minor Art. With capital letters. Please, take a look at the meaning of "Wabi-Sabi". Medium I use Japanese handmade "washi". The best Japanese papers are those which are made by hand and are produced during the winter months when snow is available for whitening the fibres naturally and the cold water keeps the fibres tight and compact during the sheet formation. For setting the paintings and being easy to display, preserve and collect, this material is inseparable from mounting. Due to that this paintings are mainly executed on Kitakata Paper (gampi fibres) which is soft and thin. There are two main ways of mounting: dry and wet. I mount my images onto cartridge paper using a dry hot press tissue. Conservation PH is taken into account along the whole process. All my work here is “archival quality”.
