Associations emerge through objects, creatures of the past, on which natural forces left traces to be tasted and experienced, saturated with stories, fairy tales, dreams, myths, with the capacity to push borders.? My work is also about the sea and the rocks under the surface of the water. Here there is a mysterious longing for peace and silence, and where the sea can dance its natural rhythm  of movement of profound and dramatic.
