The artist will present works from series created over the last five years, different in terms of contents, but all sharing the same substance: waves (undulation) as the cornerstone and molecular binder of all things existing. The starting point behind the artistic consideration and the creative process derived from it is the sensibility of the artist’s mind and body to the space he currently occupies. He uses raw materials, in which he indulges quite intuitively, to be able to employ a variety of media and material means to manifest installation works even to the level where the border between ready-made and conceptual art undulates to the point of interpolating with the gallery space, as well as the visitor.
The wave is everything.
