When I arrived at CCA Andratx it seemed like a fortress, surrounded by hills with trees and earth-charged air. The four Studios of artists join together, and are separated by high walls which are "large" in width, height and depth. The echo and silence become one. The daily weighs in the empty space and talks to the echo and bows before him. The day light varies greatly and you must work quickly on the walls, while at night artificial light is excessive and I replaced it with the soft light of the lamps.
I believe this study is untouchable.
Meanwhile, the outside space creates forms in which hills, clouds and trees are mixed.
The work hangs on the wall and dominates the living space of the study, it is impossible not to look at the wall.
The loneliness of physical and mental space of the first days becomes company afterwards. Thus, the absence can not be perceived; I have worked with the need for the idea will not exist until it is done, by reversing the idea of conceptual art to fit into a necessary and essential art.
This is the work of the series of Wall Sculptures. The curved line placed in contact with the wall through individual pieces of wood bound together by invisible threads reveals the very essence of the work. It is the lightness respect to the wall when touched the line or the distance to the wall, on the suspension of the components of the wall, and the shadow on the wall.
The curved line is a narrative on the wall of the strength in weakness. This is the space that creates the continuity or continuity is the only way to create space; in these works, drawing and sculpture appear alternately in symbiosis, not see them as sculptures and drawings, as they are a unique form and essence.
Plotinus "The eye can not see the sun if to some extent it was not a sun."
This is also followed by the circles, as a kind of game between the loading of the curve and the linear tension.
As Lacan noted: when a subject is watching is not seeing, and when he's watching he can not see. Psychoanalytic theory holds that our vision of the other bodies is always fragmentary.
Therefore the air is another element present in these works that move us as we move to the passage of air and space will occupy the empty space to move the sculptures, the air in the imaginary universe is more deductive there.
Design proceeds in pulses or beats in search of other, with the intention of invasion. These sculptures have been installed in order to design and develop through echoes.
