  • It emanates effluvia of aromatic scents of essences of fragrances that we still cannot smell because it is like looking at your hand full of seeds of different species and not knowing what you have in your hands, all alike and all different, they need to pass through odourless water and smelly earth for this deeply repressed smell to burst forth.

    This piece, untitled, reminds me of the water that runs across spaces and wets it finds without choosing perfumes, seeking the earth in which to transplant seeds from other totally unknown places.

    You make things to lose sight of them and someone else collects them to keep them, so to speak, the strange reasons for what we choose to keep are found in the secret reasons for what we make. Making or choosing, the reasons remain secret and strange even if they are told.

  • If the earth were always wet

    Licked earth, soaked earth

    Fragrant earth

    As it is

    Pure geometry in disguise

    Always latent

    Always expressing itself

    Generous merciless Mother

    Pure essential poetry

    Gauntly incarnate

    Concentrically centred

    Seed of the Universe

    Cultivated in the void

    Of an ellipse
