In contrast to the abstractions of the twentieth century, I see the true abstraction in the kind of painting that is based on the spectacle and is "recognizable" and that extracts the relations between "things" from these spectacle/s of everyday life. This series of my paintings is based in a repetitive methodology, in them the ever simpler "buildings" have been transformed into rhythms and painterly musical systems just as it happened in abstract expressionist painting. However, selecting the right detail while sometimes walk right on the edge of recognizability, my paintings always preserve the character of the given locale and its visually accessible complexity—that is, the real Spirit of place.
