"From the chimney perceives the fire. Not only the stars illuminate the night, but there is a cosmos where the flame is fanned and a garden inside the house. From the heat of interior our true flowers bown."

 

"This drawing was born form the imaginary of the house. The dots from the background create the house's shape in the middle of the universe. The flowers talk about life. This duo drawing is a metaphor to speak about our true home, where our intimacy and our heart. We are from where our cosmos is blooming, where we grow up like flowers."

Artist Q&A

What are your biggest influences?

R: The biggest influences to me are my own experiences. Moreover, I try to be attentive to subtle details in daily. In addition, I research the issues that interest me, about my own experiences to have more theoretical information and different points of view.

 

How important is the material itself to your work?

R: In my case the material is essential to start a new piece. The material itself tells a story, it is the skin of the artwork. I believe materials are as important as ideas, techniques and form.

 

How do you decide when a form works? What are you looking for in a final piece?

R: Well, it is difficult to know when a piece is finished… However, I think a piece is finished when ethics and aesthetics converge into the same thing. I also believe that when a piece is finished it is because the mind says that it is already satiated, like a stomach.

 

Does functionality ever come into your work?

R: The difference between arts and crafts is that crafts have functionality, and art doesn’t, because it is focused on the human souls.  I'm not interested in functionality. I am interested in symbolism, in form and substance, not inutility.

 

The great beauty of art is that it has no special utility. Art doesn’t cover our basic needs, such as sleeping or eating. Those needs are the same ones that animals have. Art is our need; it is what makes us humans.
