My artwork explores elements of transformation. Playing with lines and figures by means of drawings and collages are all figments of my imagination.
Some pieces are simply drawn using permanent ink markers. Other pieces are enhanced with linocuts,collages, impressions carved on linoleum plates and ink pressed onto the paper, unveiling multiple layers of shapes through the transparency of the original drawing.
This simple technique is an early printing method that goes back to the duplication of images by means of stamps or seals and later used for the reproduction of newspapers. It is also a means of artistic expression for children.
There is also a chance element to the creative process, because the saturation of pigments and contrasts between the print and the existing drawing always create a unique image. In turn a selection of the printing pieces helps me to create a collage.The transformation of two different images through this immersion creates something new and intriguing and in a way for me a spiritual experience.
