The Troves that I construct are small stages where fragments of drama are crystallized into fine-tuned emotional optic sentences. I enjoy suggesting a dynamic tête-à-tête between symbols inside the Troves or give a visual voice to a lyrical phrase. I have been compelled to the assembly of substances such as appealing found objects and semi-objects, pigments, surfaces and paints since I can remember. As a child, I started to fashion these little contained universes with 3 dimensional symbols, because I did not believe that I knew how to draw well enough. I do not have any formal education in the Fine Arts. Rather, I owe my artistic awakening to the small and dusty stuffed-wildlife displays under glass that I saw in my childhood visits to the Museum of Natural History in Madrid, Spain.
