On the images of my artworks I attempt to show what there is beyond the linearity of the story of the characters portrayed. I compose with the idea of expressing worlds or scenes created by the imagination of these characters. I use masks that cover their faces as a metaphor for the liberation of their imagination; even by covering their faces no signs or gestures; if they are angry, sad or smiling. They are just standing in a neutral pose, suspended at a time in which their imagination emerges and transports them to a desired moment.
