The collective ENTINTA gave me the possibility to participate in this multidisciplinary collective project that has wine as a leit motif. The project had various stages, starting with a wine tasting with a professional sommelier that would guide
us towards sensations that would evoque our creations. There were interventions from local Catalan poetry writers, all of this sponsored by DOCatalunya. Nearly twenty artists were able to take part in this Project. In my case my poetry partner was a promising young Catalan man Carles Morell.

This project shows a reflection put on to paper, through the copper mixed with the smell of varnish and acid, and the thickness of the ink, a reflection of a state of inherent solitude, permanent, unmovable and deep that can be found in everyone, man or woman, in this reality.
The Old Beautiful Malice is a pictorial series from my youth that wants to reflect one of the most important human questions (in this case in the context of a catholic society): the problem of evil. How to confront it, how to deal with it and how to respond to it. The series wants to humbly give value and sense to the evil
found in people. From a young naive artists point of view I was searching for beauty and the reason behind evil with a rebellious attitude, but without wanting to conform to it. The idea was to understand it through the painting at an emotional level.
With “The Praise of Hands” we could almost say it’s a double praise. On one hand it’s a praise in itself to
hands, but it’s also a way of giving importance and gratitude to “Eloge de la main” by Henri Focillon, which
has deeply inspired me. The hand never stops being an artist’s personal and individual tool, and with it to
paint it I’m communicating my identity as an artist, while also identifying myself as someone distinctive
with an unusual talent.
Perhaps any artist that paints their hands asks themselves if they’re painting their own hands or if they are
simply the vessel carrying the Voice of a foreign creator that lives through us.
The hands take initiative over the unconscious side of our minds.
