I always love sculpture, because I love “living matter”, so as it is the land I use; I like to manipulate the clay and see that a pencil drawing on the flat surface of the sheet of paper, it takes shape until it acquires a total vision, 360-degree view of the object I have devised.

Then all this goes through the fire and becomes bronze or ceramic, in the long alchemical process that modern man has perhaps forgotten, but that allows me to bring to light my research on the deeper issues of human existence, to shape the emotions, fears and impulses of the human soul.

So in my portraits I try to grasp the essence of man, playing on the contrasts between light and shadow, spirituality and materialism, but with a veil of lightness on the smooth or wrinkled surface of each of my sculptures.
