ABOUT PORTALS

On July 30, I received a letter, a letter written by me that returned to me the same day 17 years later. It was a letter with a suggestion: a trip in October. And suddenly in my life the possibility of that option arises and I accept the proposal, the magic and the game. And I start looking for images.

Internally, this project is the transition to a new stage, it speaks of changes, of possibilities, of journey, of another way of seeing and living life. Crossing the geographical borders and also your own, moving from one place to another of yourself.

Aesthetically speaking, this transition has been translated into images of doors and windows, lights and shadows, water, with a greater or lesser degree of abstraction. Old images also appear and I think that perhaps there is a dialogue with the past in a kind of transmutation of those images in new work. I am exploring overlays, different roles, web, and fundamentally sheets of books. At first I could not find the logic to justify the attraction, in this new work, of the images printed on book paper, then I thought that to start reading a book is a multiplicity of possibilities, is to surrender to the journey and let, inside the universe of the literary, what has to happen happens. As in life. And this letter that arrived, or that returned, confirms the support, because perhaps also in reality, at some point, one crosses symbolic portals to go in search of possibilities and magic.
