In its Greek etymological origin, the term space "spadion" or "stadion" means "the place". As defined by the pre-Socratic "full or empty", it was Heidegger who revealed the two key areas of space, the exterior as a result of a relationship with other objects, and the interior set, which becomes the space that surrounds it.
To human being the space is presented as sensory perception of the environment, becoming aware of the place around us and we occupy, taking reference from him and in him. Gestalt Closure Principle tells us that "Our mind adds missing elements to complete a figure", sculptors becoming involuntary and unconscious emptiness.
Emptiness, the Latin "vacivus" is "total absence of matter in a particular space or place", being the area where the particle density is very low. All particles have energy, demonstrating this with the movement. The emptier, less energy, so there is no movement. If we understand that space and time are the same, to sculpt the space with the vacuum, we shape it, delimiting the time, containing it.
This stillness gives the space occupied, pure state of timelessness, allowing an infinite observation, disappearing physical differentiation between the viewer and the sculpture, accessing our personal and intimate experience.
Schrödinger in his reference to quantum mechanics, gives rise to reflection on the coexistence of two events in the same space-time, a fact that is given and can be seen in the sculptures in this series. The peculiarity of this work is reflected in the fact the evidence of two materials, steel and alabaster, in the same space-time, raising speculation whether either, or both simultaneously, the dual reflection in essence.
This expression based on the duality of events runs through my work, showing fractionation and symbolization of space in terms of its scalar component referring to physical criteria and human character. Reflect on the consequences of the coexistence of events in the same space-time.
Influences and conclusions
My work takes place in the field of abstraction, using essential geometry as an instrument in sculptural discourse, based on the study of spaces and places, as fundamental elements in the shelter of being.
I build upon the inner eye while generating a vantage point from which to observe the world, using vacuum and matter.
Influenced by the world of architecture names as relevant as Alvar Aalto, Tadao Ando, Frank Lloyd Wright or Mies Van Der Rohe and showing glimpses of a minimalist trend of high intellectual content, while at the same time maintaining brief formal content, they appear as references , Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, Richard Serra, Jorge Oteiza and Eduardo Chillida.
Mathematics, philosophy, constructivism, minimalism, feelings, sensations, and empty space make my creative essence in sculptural expression of my works that are constantly evolving.
