In the process of capturing the condensation of my thought, I find that patterns are recurrent, insistent... revealing.
In an effort to live in harmony, I am struck by the notion of being vs. ought to be. At that point I sometimes end up going from one extreme to the other one without clarifying or knowing which path leads me and which one leads me away.
The circular lines represent a process that begins, develops and goes back to the starting point. The straight lines are the exact time in which one moment breaks and the other begins, they are limits between phases, they are the reference of a space that is inevitably interrupted by another one .
With the available resources I adapt myself to the space. My appreciation for materialism, social values and personal emotions, is embodied in a blank canvas that I usually fill with geometrical figures.
