I have an extensive body of work from my long trajectory as an artist, consisting on lino prints, drawings and paintings. My professional experience
extends for over 30 years, with many of my works spread in private collections, the most notable perhaps are the thirteen – works belonging to the Mater Private Hospital. I have exhibited in private and public galleries, here and abroad.
My art work can be classified as surrealistic, and humorous with a twist of darkness in it.
During my development as a painter, I have always shown a distinctive style, a mixture of my cultural origins and the black humour that is very distinctive from Australia as well.
I am from a generation of Spaniards who lived through, the last years of a corrupted military regime, and saw how this regime was protected by the Catholic Church who was voicing from the pulpits their dictatorial thoughts and believes.
Growing up with these subliminal messages from both sides, and having had members of my family which I love, being imprisoned and tortured, I found myself developing a surviving mechanism. A sense of humour that value absurdity, as part of a norm in life.
