MY CONNECTION TO POETRY AND VISUAL ART
I work in the creation of sculptures, objects, installations, visual actions and I write about creativity, art pedagogy, reflections on contemporary art and poetry.
My earlier relation with poetry and literature led me to experiment with my sculptural work as a kind of writing through the different materials, as you observe and touch the graphism between reliefs and textures of the sculptures or in gestural brushstrokes in painting.
On lockdown, everyday I had been sitting in my studio at home for drawing. I was looking how the blossoming coming at the springtime, in the small garden. In the afternoon I looked for a terrace near my house, to feel the sun, while I am drawing at the same time.
This is a part of my way, how I managed every day during, I asking myself for the meaning of the lockdown situation.
Here a detail of my painting "Spring 2020"
I want my steps on earth to be caring because I want to thank her for receiving me. Gives me shapes, colors, their beauty and their mystery, which I breathe in with my breath, which connects me with everything created.

Thank you to every ancestral woman who made my presence possible, to every encounter between the beings who came together to create this existence.

Mi proyecto artístico está relacionado con el bienestar, con la integración de nuestras capacidades, donde abordo los procesos creativos a través de la expresión artística desde sus lenguajes plásticos, como son la pintura, el modelado en la cerámica y la escritura creativa. En los cursos de formación y talleres que dicto, en las actividades incluyo el contacto con el cuerpo, la respiración, incluso la forma de alimentarnos. Como canales hacia una interioridad en exploración, a punto de aflorar y expresarse.

The Art I do has to do with the cosmic, physical and organic relationship, nature. In space, it is at the same time an atom, a cell, breath, vegetable, ovule, spermatozoon, micro and dust of stars, macrocosm.
I am letting the images appear and they are forming a kind of cosmogony, where I include myself in a geographical area, a continent, a planet within a galaxy barely intuited in its magnitude of universality, which allows me to swim among the fantasy of the infinite, of this presence Lunar girdle bordering body, border of a body.

The symbol of the totem denotes the mythical connection of the human being with nature and its manifestations, as in the form of animals, plants,
but also mountains, rivers or springs.
The knowledge of the human connection with the phenomena of nature is deep and is rooted in the collective unconscious, in the transpersonal.
In today's so-called sophisticated, technically rational world, this knowledge has often been lost. The loss of this knowledge leads to the impoverishment of mental development and individual creativity.
Totems as archetypal archetypes form a bridge between the collective unconscious and the development of the individual unconscious in human
existence. This knowledge was cultivated among original peoples by the shamans and found its expression in the form of symbolic images, as in totems.
Today it can be artists who have deeper access to that content of the collective
unconscious, which they show us through some artistic works to get a glimpse of the original, of the transpersonal.
