Artist Statement:

I speak of footprints, of scars, of passions, of dreams, of tall tales, of skin deep invisible maps that never stop being our own memories, becoming the highest point of our invention.

Nudity and Purity. Soft and vulnerable flesh, on which, subtly, is written the principal text, perhaps the only text that is inseparable from our selves, our experience. Wounds and desires that cannot be verbalized and appear disguised as symptoms.

Encodings of all that returns for having stayed uncomprehended and that, like liberation, seeks to make conscious the unconscious.

Experiences that become increasingly opaque, causing memories to be even more important than our experiences. Blindness that playfully warns, entering the wondrous world of our imagination, where, without preamble, takes control of any hint of sanity. Pains that take charge of emphasizing the presence of the body which melts with time.
Memories that insist with bias on the circularity of pleasure, of the past, of passion, of suffering. And always encrypted, codes that escape the understanding that was also there and that pretentiously refuses to be a part of your past.
And to continue dreaming, given the subject of dreams, is to continue remembering eternally.

Artist’s Talk: September 8 at 6:00 pm. Reception to follow.
