MY ARTISTIC APPROACH THE SERIES PERFILS.
The series “Perfils” born in 2007, it is the result of natural evolution of the previous series, called “Project Labyrinth” (2002/2007). In this series, I researched the personality of the individual facing society that defines and shapes our habits and behaviours.
In “LABYRINTH PROJECT” I referred to the feelings, fears, desires and senses, which show the Human in the depths of his being. However, the project “Perfils” the protagonist is the Human being himself.
The Perfils Series (profiles) evokes the look, or lack of it, deep sensory relationship between the subjects of my works. Devoid of sexual identity, not to fall into the temptation of partiality. That is why I give A character androgynous appearance.
With this work, I try to bring attention and sensitivity of the spectator and induce him inside introspective journey in search of sensations and emotions in his reflection in favour of equality between Human beings. Regardless of their sexual identity, gender or social status, race or religion.
With my work, my intention is not to provide answers, but rather to raise questions to the spectator watching.
