dc.description.abstractThis body of work is a synthesis of images from primitive cultures, history and real-life experience. These works are the physical manifestation of a personal aesthetic which promotes looking at the past to reflect on contemporary society. These works do not have any concrete message or meaning but are loaded with a number of possibilities which usually allow the spectator to arrive at some conclusion. In order to stage the most interesting set of possibilities I use devices like paradox and irony. These devices seem to form the core of many religions and forms of mysticism because they attempt to explain the unknowable (knowledge of God, life after death, etc.) with the spectacular and impossible. The best examples of this are from Christianity: Christ is dead but alive in everyone, his mother was a virgin but gave birth.en
