This project has several fronts. On the one hand, the tender and timeless painting of birds on plywood, sometimes with the following phrase: Today I painted this bird to be happier.
Parallel to these paintings I worked with materials such as resins, silkscreen-printed fabrics, latex, wood, clay and rose petals to make different pieces to photograph. The idea is to alternate the photos with portraits I've been doing since 2007. I think my photography blog has sequences with different doses; beauty, chaos, order, peace, confusion, spirituality... I make sure they are sincere doses of what I perceive, what stimulates me, what I find or provoke so I can find it.
Another line of work is the ready-made linguistics I do with phrases such as:
I never charged him / I find ducks more and more attractive / Live everything, all I said was I wanted to live everything / I have not got over Cecilio G leaving me / Kissing the deer is prohibited everything is so smooth /.
I silk-screen printed these phrases on fabrics, resins, latex, wood... to make the slides so they can be photographed.
And finally I wanted to do an audio piece recording several lingering kisses of two minutes long from inside the different mouths to work the piece as a whole and present one or five audio pieces under a title that defined much of the work.
