HEAD

The work stem from the concept construction-destruction. A place of start and end at the same time; a place of identity as presence and form of things, or just the opposite.
Born from a crack, a strange landscape caused by a blow to us and makes us look at the brain from the outside. It raises the fantasies and realities of a torrent of strong energy, where logic loses sense and becomes consistent, look at the world to see how it moves.
From the world of symbology often aggressive and many other beautiful and almost religious. The physicality is why, as variables and the last years have led to what now express from vacuum. What the speed of body craves and is able to express.
In this very physical work I have been as mentally he could be.
