I think of my paintings as movie scenes in which I am a character. I am interested in doing an exercise of self- knowledge through them, which can function as a time capsule that refects the objects that surround me, the people that accompany me, and the real or mental circumstances in which I live. The scenes are like a journal in which I sublimate myself. I like to think that there is something universal in what I represent, that the symbolical meaning of my work does not speak only of me but also of my generation.
