He has deep ecological and environmental concerns in a broad sense. Nature is considered in its works as an ideal space capable of maintaining spiritual and psychic stability in the individual, as well as an essential source of life. Space that is nevertheless seriously threatened by the attacks of the same subject whom it favors.
This is a direction that moves. The artist uses a rigorous pictorial technique, He has special skills in the treatment of the chromatic range, of a lot of versatility (warm and cold, intense and neutral, primary, secondary, tertiary); the use of perspective resources (linear and atmospheric), textures, the degradation of values, light and the springs of transparencies;
The design of the structural lines and the internal composition of the painting. With the aim of prevailing the general plans, the panoramic views that recreate the landscape in all its extension and splendor, with a more revealing visual poetry. It is curious that the human being never appears in images; It would come to play the role of the spectator, of that receptor that is synonymous with the need for distance and critical awareness for ecological references. Company of an incalculable ethical dimension, human in the massive meaning of the term, and that is greatly appreciated in the uncertain and overwhelming times that run.
