Periods:

The stages in my plastic work have always been determined by the technique.

My first approach to the engraving was the woodcut and, at that stage, I was concerned about achieving an expressive image, taking as an inspiration the German expressionist movies. Later, while in an exchange programme at "The Glasgow School of Arts", I took advantage of its facilities of the same to change the technique to metal engraving. The result was an artist book artist, a tiny graphic novel; my reference for it was the graphic style of the alternative comic or graphic novel, without leaving aside the concern for an "expressive" image.

After returning to Chile I once again switched techniques, in the search of a particular type of image, as well as a larger size. After many turns I ended up doing blueprints (photocopies of drawings), which enabled me to work in a giant poster format and combine collage and drawing.

Failing to find a solution to avoid the deterioration of the heliographic printing, I went back to metal engraving. This time, my topics focused on the romantic vision of landscape, which leaked from my previous stage, only in a more "classic" way this time.

Artist's statement:

Romantic landscape, light and shade (the shade), German expressionist cinema and contemporary alternative comics.
