“…toda percepcion de la realidad es una abstraccion en si misma y esta un momento de la memoria”
I was born in 1960 in Madrid. I studied Fine Arts specially in the painting sector, in theMadrid Complutense University. I obtained the Fine Arts title in 1987, the last two years I got a grant on the painting departure. That year I obtained also a grant on the Spain Academy of Arqueology History and Fine Arts of Rome. During my experience Iwas working to meet the relation with the “other”, a way that will me discover the introspective space of the dialogue and knowledge. The Italian experience will continue over time and will me report to work possibilities that could allow me to maintaine a constant presence in that country to the present, with their consequent enrichmentexperiential and cultural.
In my comeback to Madrid I worked in my first individual art exposition in 1989. And after three years I moved to Almeria Alhama until 2019. Alhama is a very importantplace, and it is all over my artistic work. Actually I live and work in Madrid again.

In addition, I took parte in a great variety of colective expositions in Spain and outside of Spain during my trajectory. In that moments I have six pieces expose in a colective sponsored by Meca Mediterraneo, in the Cervantes de Paris highschool
The work I make actually, is a reflection of the last individual exposition “ Prólogos a lo que es posible”, in the Meca Gallery in Almeria the last 2019 ( March-April) and the pieces and sketches not exposed in that exposition that were arise at the same time of the preparation and the exposition time of MECA.
The work I comment, started since 2017, with differents backgrounds, but undoubtedly, 2020 has been important in the creative process. In special because of our fragilityfeelings and uncertainty presents in my work.
I remember in the presentation of the catalogue Fernando Barrionuevo” after a lot of conversations and visits to the studio, we thought about the presence of my work with a nice interest of the lost of the identity concept, not only of the subject me , otherwise of the social me and how it work actually. It is reflected in the dispersion of the limits like a referential space, the lost of the margins needed to locate the memory lands. Also we need to add the lost of the truth concept.
The presents network structure in other creative times, makes me build differentsconcrets elements in the reality and also differents reflections. This make me create the possibilities to build the “dark” series, started in Almeria and finished in Madrid (2020).
The “dark” series told us about the humans, also about the fragility and the time we are living actually , makes us to reflect about the time we have lived and the time we are living. In my works something is dilute but also something that is nice .
The “ fire” series that I am working, share us a great part with the previous ones, buttold us more about the uncertainty and pain of the actual life. It has differents elementswith shadows that occupy all the space.
Lastly, I want to give importance to concepts like density, severity and time that I givethem to my works
