– For dreams and hallucinations in which altered states of consciousness lead to parallel realities. For those images that I saw on the wall in times of extreme poverty, the etheric journeys through painting, the ability to extract the essence, from that non-place, and reveal messages that changed the way we see the world and the art.

– By the individual and collective unconscious and the ambiguity of the symbols: Carl G. Jung, Sigmund Freud, André Masson, André Breton and the strength of surrealism in him.
– For the gesture as a shamanic act of creation, which was already practiced with an ancestral character and in the pictorial actions of known and unknown artists of the mediumistic artists to Marcel Duchamp – who unveiled automatism in New York. Because of the transcendence of adopting it in a quiet and effective way, painting inwards.
– For the relationship with religions, the cult of the land of primitive peoples, the Spanish mystics, the Tibetan emptiness, the dark sonority and the weightlessness of Zen, Sufism, Akash and the traces of women, moons and goddesses .
– By the light and color with which he represented the being between the earth and the sky.
– For the alchemy of materials, the metamorphosis of objects and their gravitation, the color of dreams, the use of ascension codes and expanded nights.
– For the stars, the constellations, the affirmation of the human soul diluted in its immensity and the unfolding of time.
– For writing to a friend expressing: «I believe in the dark forces». *
