Artist Statement 

In my paintings the background invades and delimits, produces a void that both isolates and holds the figure.  My work plays in the limit between craftsmanship and technology. The images i use are composed appealing to photography and computers, which are later rendered on the canvas painting them by hand with brushes, trusting the eyes to measure and the hands to create, in an effort to rescue the craft work and at the same time showing that is possible to get close to the quality of something produced serially by technologic processes. This is not a way of resistance to technology but a revaluation of craftsmanship and its quality.
