This series of paintings happened to start when I got a very thin and long table, the one I still have. Since long time ago I actually intended to start exploring this composition, and that table helped me on that. 


"Horizontal compositions make the eye travel easier across the surfaces and notice the narrative of different materials."

In architectural representations it is very common to connect floor plans with facade drawings, sections, and so on, though auxiliary lines  in order to give the sense of what the whole building would be.

That logic was brought to my paintings.

In architecture, the point of a drawing is to foresee something much bigger that would be outside of it. 

 

I work on several paintings at the same time and try to find a common idea that motivates their integration.

It is like having the whole building in my head while designing a small windowsill.

Once I find that the whole makes sense together with every detail, I declare my work done. 

 

Influence of architecture

It starts usually with a piece of paper, often an already existing, unfinished drawing or collage stumbled upon. Parts of one work are cut and added onto another. Therefore, there is no original format or orientation to dictate any conditions. If something is incomplete, I glue in additional surfaces. So the painting grows as more and more elements are added. It is hard to know how big the next piece is going to become.
