Hyperbole: A rhetorical figure of thought that consists of exaggerating or diminishing what is said.
“These landscapes are called hyperbolic for obvious reasons. They are exaggerated landscapes, exacerbated with large oil fillings and with an almost sculptural pretense. The roots are fundamentally expressionist and in the horizons only the horizon line would be left to arrive at pure abstraction. In This horizon line, heaven and earth, contaminate each other, making it impossible to discern where one begins and where another ends. It produces its contemplation or memory, which is why it is a type of painting that wants to directly appeal to emotion, to that spring that almost always remains asleep and which is beyond our control.
These landscapes change into a different and emotional language. My intention is that the viewer, when looking at them, feels that a set of emotions and sensations of some memory that floats or resides sheltered in some unknown fold of that immense drawer that makes up memory are relived. It is about painting painting, visceral and primal without further pretense.
When I paint I do not seek to make a copy of reality. On the contrary, what I want is to represent a parallel reflection where landscapes are evoked, intuited or apprehended from the fragility of a memory or of an instant. A kind of emotional flash where memory recovers a landscape like a reverie, like a spark caused by a slight memory file that swarms through our heads and that sometimes wants to come alive again. So they don’t look like reality, nor do they need to”.
