About The Artwork

Project idea and philosophical background; I am panicked by water and imagined my own drowning, my body disappearing under the water surface. But also the erotic power of my vitality. The “Lethe” is a flowing river in the underworld that erases the memories and gives the capacity to live eternally. In this project duality from death and life follows the red tread of my later art. Show; Lethe installation was presented during a 4 weeks exhibition at “Pentiment” Fachhochschule für Gestaltung, Hamburg, Germany and Cacaofabriek, Helmond, Netherlands Materials; Image transferring technique on 300 gr watercolor paper and edited with color pencils.

Born in 1949 San Sebastian, Spain, lives in Netherlands and France - Large Conceptual Installations - New projects each year - Light & heavy materials - Unconventional techniques developing works passing over the borders of sculpture and painting - Project books with special layouts - Active in many countries. My esthetic standpoint is based on the duality between life and death. Therefore in each of my projects I choose materials out of two types, either light translucent or heavy opaque ones. Among the first ones are light textile materials, as gauze, rice paper, tracing paper, organza, the second type includes lead, sea salt, wood, charcoal, porcelain and stone. I have developed my projects in the numerous places where I lived; they reflect my nourishment with the local cultures as well as the spiritual significance of the installation site. Six or seven process steps make up every project: from identifying the concept and suitable installations spaces, through the transformation of poor materials into poetic objects, to the final design and the production of books about the realization of the art work.
