PINTADRAWING -CURATED BY ROC LASECA in view December 2-6
"Since the early 70s I have worked with the idea of duality, which I have expressed by contrasting the apparent contradictions, in many different ways, even in simple phrases written on panels of exhibition spaces.
I started making installations in which I applied paint or suspended lines with cords, directly using the walls and floors of competition spaces, then galleries, offices and residential settings.
While using corner spaces, or working within large enclosures, I was playing with the idea of the multiplicity of dimensions. Working with graphics or works on paper, or sculptures and paintings, I could stretch some imagination and circumvent limitations.
I like it when viewers often refer to becoming aware of their own presence while contemplating these ideas, because the realm of the mind is what I really have been aiming at, in trying to reach the deepest of our existence."
