Through black and white drawings, installations and stop-motion videos, I present a reflection  on the current identity crisis and the relationship between the Self and the Other as a process of construction and destruction of the individual. The game and the humour are quite important ingredients which confront the melancholy inherent to both these situations and the individuals.

I work three basic concepts: Fashion, Narcissus and Superhero. Fashion is understood as the system which contextualizes us in this value lacking present time. This situation makes us look for shelter in myths and disguise ourselves as superheroes, as a reaffirmation of our identity.

My methodology is what gives personality to my work. Every stimulation is a mirror which looks back at us. I create portraits in which those who are in it, through their disguises, refer themselves to films, songs, conversations, books… What these images show from within is the model of the eternal teenager, in which Narcisus looks for strong emotional experiences which make him feel and vibrate.

In summary, i turn reality into fiction, through the absurd, and i try to show fragility by offering an invitation to voyeurism. This is how we play.

Mediante dibujos en blanco y negro, instalaciones y videos en stop-motion, reflexiono sobre la crisis existente con el concepto de identidad, y sobre las relacione entre el Yo y el Otro como proceso de construcción y destrucción del individuo. El juego y el humor son importantes ingredientes que confrontan la melancolía de estas situaciones y la de los mismos sujetos.

Trabajo tres conceptos básicos: Moda, Narciso y Superhéroe. La moda entendida como el sistema que nos pone en contexto en un presente carente de valores. Esta situación nos lleva a refugiarnos en mitos y a buscar superhéroes de los que disfrazarnos como reafirmación de la identidad.

La metodología utilizada es lo que da carácter a mi obra. Cualquier estímulo sirve para crear un espejo donde mirarse. Realizo retratos en los que los representados hacen referencia, mediante el disfraz, a películas, canciones, conversaciones, libros… Estas imágenes conforman modelos del eterno adolescente, donde el desolador juego de narciso busca experiencias emocionales fuertes, que le hagan sentir y vibrar.
En síntesis, ficciono la realidad mediante el absurdo y busco que nuestra fragilidad se haga patente, invitando al voyeurismo . Así es como jugamos.
