Series of paintings


Etat Second (French for Second State) was a concept used by the Argentinian writer Julio Cortazar to describe the state of mind which mixes abstraction and concentration at the same time, to his moment of maximum creativity.

The project Etat Second stems from the pursuit of the sublime that reveals the language of the cosmos through the contemplation of nature. The ambition of this unrestrained pursuit is to transcend the being by disintegrating thoughts, feelings and preconceptions thus flowing with the universal language where everything comes from and converges; in order to unveil the essence of those shapes that precede concepts and exist regardless of time and space. Driven by perpetual thirst, the spirit of this project surrenders to the devouring and embracing brushstrokes. Created universes emerge in the movements, sensations and vibrations that expand into the large canvases. The paintings, free of vices, create timeless spaces and shapes defined by atmospheric and hectic brushstrokes that breathe in the strength and simplicity of color.
