STATEMENT


 Humanity is the inherent spirit in my work. I am not after the originality, neither behind legibility. The result is the conflict between my intention and the image's desire through the adaptability, the accident and mistake. My hipercuriosity explores the poetry behind the sign, between the oneiric and the reality,through my vision in art and anthropology. I attest to the social reality, not as an accomplice, but asking the establishment about the invisible perceptibility to mass media. My work manifest what I believe: art is my revenge. —F.J.
