In reference to totemic constructions, Egyptian pillars and amphorae, I compose sculptures from materials used in the construction of buildings, which are far from the neat metals, treated wood and classical painting used to build the original pieces I observe and refer to.
In terms of status, there is an opposition between distinguished and modest. While the amphorae make use of precious metals, My volumes are built with plastic moulds purchased from the Chinese trade, school pencils, common dishwashing sponges and cement, there is a material opposition that pretends to exalt those ordinary materials to reach the same energy and power of those distinguished ones.
