As a creator, I’m interested in abnormality and its effects on human life. To make up this artwork, I made a research of people that live conjoined lives. I created the piece with deep respect and empathy towards these people.

As a creator, I’m interested in abnormality, deformity and its effects in human life. The persons that lose one of their five senses or were born missing one of them call my interest. This initial information helps me develop my work. I created this piece with deep respect for these persons.

In this figurative artwork, I recreated an eerie, black painting of a haunting scene in a dungeon. Somewhat a dreadful slumber. The relationship established between the characters is an interpretation for you to decipher.

The frantic behaviour of this anonymous man in a psychiatric asylum deeply impressed me. I watched him on a film done decades ago. His story, still “talks” to us… The man in yellow, the man in pain.

As in the myths, this painting shows a bicephalous in a strange dialogue. One of the creatures is aware of the observer, who is looking at the scene. In return, the personage’s gaze intends to wrap up the observer such as some characters do in “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp” created by the grand master, Rembrandt (1606-1669, Dutch Republic).

Fatness is a human condition that, in arts, is a splendid topic to work with. The generosity with which an overweight body exposes itself, displaying its carnality, is magnificent.

The artwork is my interpretation of one the scenes of the story, “The Hell So Dreaded 1” (1) by Juan Carlos Onetti (Uruguay, 1909-1994): “La primera carta, la primera fotografía, le llegó (a la oficina) entre la medianoche y el cierre. (La) vio por sorpresa, no terminó de comprender, (pero) supo que iba a ofrecer cualquier cosa por olvidar lo que había visto.” (The first letter, the first photograph, arrived (to the office) between midnight and the closing time. (…) He saw it by surprise, and did not quietly understanding it, but he knew he was going to offer anything to forget what he had seen.)

My work intends to picture life with its sometimes dark, dramatic, incomprehensible ways of presenting itself. I try hard to make art that has polysemy or different interpretations by the observers. So, I only point in a direction without defining a destiny. The journey has to be made by the re-creator.

As an artist, I have always been interested in abnormality and its effects on human life. I based this work on a series of public photographs of human fetuses. They stroke my attention because of its composition, colors, dramatic poses and their strange beauty. I made up the work with great respect towards the tragedy of these never born creatures.

These paintings operate in a diptych, which means they flow together to form a single unified scene with a narrative that bonds them. They search to have a strong sense of visual coherence.

Regarding the technique I used in this work, I made it up with brushes and finger painting. One thing that I enjoyed is the use of thinner in the crayon strokes that diluted them, and then I mixed the colour that was left them with the oil painting.

In this portrait I looked forward to create the gaze of the male nudes to provoke an emotional response in the observer. This to include him/her in their tragic condition.  I took this principle of art from Rembrandt's "Syndics of the Drapers' Guild"*, where the characters stare at the observer and that action makes the latter participate in what's happening in the piece.

As a creator, I’ve always been concerned with abnormality and its effects in human life. To create this work, I read and watched testimonials of persons united in the same body living “intersected lives”.   I created this work with deep respect for these persons.

I attend to workshops where physical models pose to the participants, but during this Covid period, I haven’t had the chance to do so. So, what I do, among other activities, is remembering these past exercises, and draw/paint them by heart. In most of them I try to achieve the gesture. I invite you to watch a 1 min video where you can appreciate the process of the artwork at https://www.patreon.com/posts/45864748

Thank you for visiting this collection: Human Body.

Welcome!

One thing I say with humbleness is that I paint what human life uncovers at certain moments and permit me to palpate it. Sometimes–when this happens–, the extraordinary unfolds, plentiful with deformity and drama. I seek to capture this deranged beauty with polysemous (different) meanings. Within these results, I always search too to cause a visual impact, a blow, a strike upon the soul of the observer.

My Initial Resources

As an artist, I use all the resources I have in hand. This means that I use physical human models, digital photography, chronophotographs (video stills from documentaries), digital images, radiology images, clay and digital sculptures (done by me). The aforementioned means that almost any media can be an initial resource for my work.

Sometimes, I even mix traditional techniques (oil, acrylic) with digital art, such as in Head Study 76. The process of this piece is interesting. I sculpted a human head in Blender (open-source 3D software), duplicated it and merged both pieces. In the same environment, I explored the figure from different points of view (profile, low-angle, high-angle images, etc.). Then selected the one I liked the most. I used the last image as an initial source to paint this portrait in a physical environment with oil on paper.

Art Techniques

The techniques I use are traditional (oil and acrylic, crayon, pencil, clay sculpting, etc.) and digital painting and sculpting (digital tablet, Photoshop, Blender, etc.).
