"In my artistic trajectory, I have moved from the realistic figurative representation of the photographic view to abstraction. In the patterns observed by nature, I recognized the infinite creator diversity of nature. This journey from the materialist who photographed representational things and was in search of external beauty of form, I have come to the view that the matter from which something is formed, the way in which it shows itself to us and makes it perceptible, is part of something greater, of which we are a part and in which we participate by choosing each moment to see what we see and co-create this reality"
