About The Artwork

In my free time I go hiking and mountain biking, and where I live the mountains are just a few kilometers away. This series titled messages in stone shows a part of those routes where several times I collected stones that caught my attention due to their shape, color, shine, texture or weight, each of them represents an image in itself since they only allow me to continue and polish what its lines and various shapes indicated to me. Most are white and purple quartz and some sedimentary rocks with quartz veins. They are minerals typical of the Andean mountains of Trujillo-Venezuela, hard but noble and delicate at the same time. They are very difficult quartz to work with, however each one tries to capture the meaning of the Desculptures, which is nothing other than the evolution of an unfinished work that shows the interested observer a part of the raw mineral until the emergence of something that the same mineral carries implicit in its diverse and complex forms with minimal intervention by the artist

The inability to copy the perfection of nature leads me to the desesculturas, located in the threshold of the beginning and the end of the work, trying the impossible: to melt the wood with aluminum, cement and iron. Something similar happens with utopia, that the further away from the possible greater influence is acquired, my desesculturas are placed between the previous and the later to the work, the border of the creative process, the half of the history, the unfinished story, etc. As Michael Foucault put it: "The transgression is a gesture that refers to the limit, the transgression and the limit, but in transgressing, in Bataille, does not consist in opposing the limit or deny it, but, on the contrary, in affirming it." My Desesculturas do not pretend to comply with anything, they do not seek to solve anything but to raise conjectures, occupy spaces, leave messages. My project covers painting, sculpture and also literature (fantastic stories and poetry), everything depends on the state of mind. I was born in a coastal town called Lagunillas but I currently live in the Venezuelan state of Trujillo.
