Piece description from the artist

I conceive my paintings as something similar to life: there is a general idea about what we are going to do, but then there are also unexpected factors that can add a particular twist — like each time a color interacts with water, it creates a different effect. I foresee a painting before I start it, but I allow variations to the original plan. These variations give a surreal spin to my work that goes along with my way of looking at things not as they are but as they could be. I like to use watercolors as a medium where every brushstroke on the paper becomes part of the final work.

I begin obsessed with certain scenes that I see in my mind. I try to sketch and paint the landscape several times, developing at every step a more personal shape. I like to paint landscapes that are deserted by people and have skies of fantastic colors, as if they came out of a dream. These objects become part of a blurred world that belongs to my personal vocabulary. They become impossible to recognize in their original form, but, at the same time, they are vaguely familiar.
