One of the goals I pursued when started my bronze works, was to bring the public close to art and to get rid of the ancestral barrier imposed by experts, museums and galleries: Do not touch. The aim of my creations is that in addition to observing them they can be touched, so they are fully appreciated without restriction nor reverence.

Thus, I chose to do without bases, those structures alien to sculptures which are worth only to hold them, and in doing so, they also restrict and isolate them. Just as well, I decided to work using a scale in which people can relate to my pieces more intimately by holding and manipulating them, and they can easily be integrated to reduced environments of nowadays life.

One of my ideas of art is that it should be accessible to the public in every way.
