“Quo Vadis?” is about my search in life. Following a path, exploring my interior through ‘selfies avant-la-lettre’, the self-portroids (1982-1994) and exploring the outside through transiting unknown paths, the ‘Quo Vadis’ (1987-now). I am an explorer of my own life, a traveler in time and space, always looking for a new horizon, somewhere better?
When I step out of my house which lies hidden in a small valley and climb up our first hill, I come to open fields. On my morning walks I often walk around these fields, which always look different at all stages of all seasons. My latest exhibition is a homage to these fields. With fragments … More Ploughed Fields and Borrowed Words

If there is anything the Andalusians master, it is the art of celebrating life. No matter hardship or economic crises, they will always find a reason to party and celebrate their religion. In all Andalusia they have a yearly ‘Romeria’, a pilgrimage where they will walk ‘their’ Virgin to a sanctuary or just take her out to the countryside. Once arrived at their … More Celebrations
This morning, as many mornings, we went for a walk just straight from our house. My head was filled with worries, same old same old, money things. But the longer I walked the more I felt disconnected to that ‘silly thing called economy’. I fled into reality.. Another spring has come and we’re still here. No, we … More Flight into Reality
Through these photographs I want to show my fascination with the environment. I live in the countryside and every morning when I wake up I see the vast beauty of my surroundings. Sometimes I want to zoom in and investigate what lies within that vastness. Where does one see the hand of men, and when … More Come closer (Nature Speaks)
With the heat of the summer, gone is the juicy green. The land is plowed and shows its bare brown belly The hay is dry and ready to be cut or spread around like big yellow dice thrown out from the sky The vines are vibrantly green, while the aniseed plants are blossoming in soft … More A summer blanket
Don’t break no bones..
The old ways still live. Some of these works were shown at the exhibition ‘Desvíos‘, as member of the ‘Grupo NIE‘, in March 2011 at the Convento de Santo Domingo in Ronda.
