Philosophical Anthropology: An Exploration around the Journey (The Existence)
I do not sin of reductionism when I summarize a large part of my work as a process of inquiry, reflection or exploration around the journey, existence itself. Well, from that opening towards the infinite of all the possible ones and, through an investigation process that turns the philosopher subject into the philosophized object (scrutinized), is born this early work that emerges motivated by the eternal question for the sense of the human thing, around which I establish the guidelines of reflection in a good part of my investigations as an multidisciplinary artist that moves in the coordinates of art and philosophical anthropology.
Hieroglyphic Monad: Glyphs and Codes of the Encrypted Self
Every man, by the very fact of being so, is open to the other, to the unknown and transcendent, whether understood as the divine, a divinity, a simple capacity of projection or whatever; it is an anthropological trait that defines him. That effort to understand our human condition; that natural curiosity (already assumed since the times of Aristotle: “All men wish by nature to know”), drags us to the “eternal question“. Well, from that conscious opening and from that interaction with the world in it is born, precisely, Seed of Light, summarizing my artistic practice until today as a path of self-recovery, self-discovery and reconquest; a position in which, like Heraclitus, I could define the last three decades of my work in very brief words: I have sought myself.
