Since I have use of reason,
I have lived in another world, always fantasizing about being elsewhere with other life forms, imagined alternate realities, with owl attentive eyes, searching “unique” things and weird living things .
As a child, I had a strong predilection for knowing the Nordic and Greek mythology, the epic wars; A fascination for bestiaries, the world of Tolkien, Celtic Tales, the Grimm’s, Hans Christian Andersen etc.
As I began this collection, I had no specified intension of the model, never had a preconception or what would be the sculpture final form; According to the projections, the slits of eyes, the amount of mud on the table and informal aspects, with lots of imagination, I gave form and identity to the sculpture.
The result of this process led me, to see a factor in the semantics of my productions; which were creatures, monsters and characters, similar to those mythology beasts from my childhood tales.
So I decided to continue shaping the identity of creation by giving a narrative or to assign an existing mythology singularity.
The Underworld of the Faun, is the collection of sculptures made in 2012 - 2013, in a dark and chaotic period in my life where literally the works are the reflection of my subconscious, pretty chaotic full of demons but always with a touch of mischief and humor; which is an important part of what I am.
Welcome to the underworld of my unconscious, where there will be beasts, demons and the occasional fairy; a forgotten world for those who are in spite of its nature in peace and harmony in the shadows of the world….
