Three oversized works made of colored beads on plywood, depicting tongues of fire and landscapes, the mesmerizing forces of the burning fire once again hint at the connection between man and nature and the destruction and annihilation inherent in this flames and relationship.

 

In all the bodies of works there is an approach according to the abyss, to the end. One out of over-excess, and the other out of erupting violence, the third due to the forces of nature and human actions. In all of them there is a dichotomy and dissonance between the material and the subject. A simple, low material, creates the look of a lavish prom full of grandeur. And in the second, a material that belongs to the world of childlike beauty and grace that becomes a picture of a harsh and violent reality.
