Threshold

 

 This new series of mixed media on sealed wood panel, is based on the Bible, old family photographs and lineal drawings of doors and windows. 

 

"After studying the Bible and various recreated scenes based on its books, I conceive my own comment. The topics will be the same: Madonna and Child, The Holy Family, The Presentation in the Temple, The Visitation, etc. Conceptually based on themes dealt with during most of the Renaissance period and even before, this series is an essay, an experiment which responds to a personal contemporary imaginary, under a current lens. Linear images: doors and windows, share the bi-dimensional common space of the panel and leads to symbolic (and metaphorical) interpretations. There is a communication between both areas; even though visually divided in the same bi-dimensional space, they are conceptually related.”
