CONTEMPORARY MENHIR:

The first inhabitants of the Earth erected the menhirs for pagan rituals. They are ancestral structures and heritage of our human experience. The work draws from prehistory the shape of the menhir which, in addition to representing mankind and communication with the Gods, is the symbol of the Earth... the stone! In form and location, it must give a sense of archaicity and precariousness ... precarious like the Earth. A precariousness that finds its balance in the right application of technology in service of the environment. This artificial stone is revealed by his structure, composed of materials existing in nature but elaborated by man throughout his evolutionary process, and by the manufacturing technology that represents modern times. It is a sculpture that wants to make you reflect on the planet's conditions, as it is the synthesis of both cultural and environmental planet's problems. But also, it states the possibility of positive evolution. A contemporary Menhir meant to be a symbol of peace and coexistence ... (with respect and sensitivity, nature and progress can exist side by side). Perhaps this is a sort of pagan ritual as well!

METEORITES:

I think of a global sculpture, a large meteorite that represents the idea, the artist, the material and the energy. It comes from space and when it impacts the atmosphere it is divided into various fragments. By randomly falling on the earth's crust, it contaminates itself by including specific elements of the place in which it has fallen, that can be spiritual, organic or artificial. Inspiration and life come both from the chaos of cosmos... These sculptural fragments are a result of the same matrix: the artist. Contamination represents curiosity and research, while randomness is destiny ... The internal part of the meteorite is made up of recycled plastic materials generated by "cleaning the environment in which we live" and they are incorporated as a structure, while the surface is made of ecological resins mixed with natural and artificial materials. Being part of a global work, the pieces have as their title an abbreviation that summarizes the imaginary place of discovery, weight and date.
