Explanation of the serie “La Paz Desnuda”:
This series comes from a group work with Fernando Bogado, the author of the book “La paz desnuda”. He convoked me for illustrating it through images. Instead of doing a lineal way, I tried to take pictures of what I felt by haven read the book. This led to a personal and old search about love. Love as the impossible reaching of the desire, love as an unreal and idyllic construction that never realizes. Each one is a projection of the other´s desire, in the way that the identity is only a fictitious construction. Each one is representing the frustration of not being able to reach that ideal, which provokes the feeling of love as absence.
