I consider my work to be quite intimate. Under the scope of my own experiences, I elaborate a story about everyday life, I expose situations we all face day to day. My intention is to bait the audience into taking a second, closer, look; it is an invitation to reﬂect on everything that goes by in our journey unnoticed. I am Spanish, but I have been living in Mexico for the last six years. I began to work with the city as a self-portrait since I arrive from an urban environment to a more rural one, and I began to search for my self here, with a view to the unknown and the new, to ﬁnd my self in what was in front. These last years through art, I have been questioning the territory I live in, building a new identity, my identity.
This cities with which I work in this series, “Intervals”, represent the mirror as an image of the reflection on one´s own identity. This duality between Narciso and the Vampire of which Fontcubert speaks about in his book “The Kiss of Judas: photography and truth” “someone pursues the reflection of the one he lacks”. We are in a constant paradox searching for ourselves. The horizon of the utopia is the one being. An none horizon. We are intervals. The counterpoint between what we think we are and what we should be. There is no up or down. Symmetry breaks, colors invade one and other. In these collages there is an attempt to reframe and recompose our thousand facades.
