Taxonomy of Love

“Often in the field of artistic work, something uncontrollable for the artist is tapped. A puzzling and often confusing, yet important and determinating process completes itself parallel with the conscious and willing behavior to accomplice the goals set out. The quests in the scientific field following the initial steps to create a work, take me to strange areas of my domain of interest.”

Between beauty and disgust

“My work is surprising, raises questions, the fragile beauty is often associated with horror, even with disgust. Not only for the created work, but also for the violation of the integrity of the living being, for it is often necessary to be destructive in the method of research. This duality that I experience at any dissection or other research experience is part of my job. It would be an illusion to think that the final artwork remains untouched by it. And I notice that artists and scientists often dance on the same tightrope.”
