TITLE: Black touch
Black touch is a photographic interpretation of the perception of the senses and opposing elements.
Series in which I pose images that could arise from an artist's dream-like thinking through contrasts and touch sensations, where it is intended to arrive at a perception of what is imaginable, such as the relationship that may exist between skin or black touch.
The intensity of a dream or the shelter of an animal.
The contrast between light and shadow, between the natural and the manipulated.
The perception of the imaginable and the chill of a marble on the bare skin.
Sanity or madness.
Love, hatred and the passage between generations.
A look between cats.
A fine line between interior and exterior, between skin and earth.

When you are willing to do so, personal concerns and reflection create creative moments that are represented by the tools that are closest. I feel next to the light, the color, the sound and the absence of all of them at the same time, giving them form as if it were a game.
Part of my personal work is to provoke the viewer to rethink their beliefs about the medium, creating images that do not conform to what is established as a photograph. I believe that when a creative expression tries to exceed the established limits, it forces the viewer to activate its thinking part and not only to recognize what is presented.
I like to recall the words of Adolph Gottlieb, teacher in the progressive simplification of form, "The role of the artist has always been the creator of images. Different times require different images."
