“Matter is condensed light"

My work explores the strength of the topography and natural territory, conceived as an energy living mantle constantly moving; Epidermal stratification wrought by time, with a telluric language emerging, pressing, gravitating, revealing through the landscape.

I seek to cover different scales within my artistic approach, from the massiveness of the mountains and rocks, through its decanting process and fragmentation up to the stone as the basic unit.

I am interested in the matter as condensation of light and its process of transformation and expansion of energy over time, releasing weight to return to the origin.
