‘My first Dots and Lines piece was a drawing I made of an insect after I saw it for the first time in 2020. It’s not only one of the most colorful insects there is, but its appearance seemed to be made out of simple Dots and Lines. It was a Coreid Bug Nymph. That encounter marked the beginning of an endless study of Dots and Lines.

This series’ paintings relate to the disassembling of the insect’s form into its building blocks, that to me are a Dot and a Line. In the same way, I handled the colors taking them to their primary state: red, blue, and yellow. To fully embrace the whole spectrum I incorporated black and white. This series is a work on the DNA, what we are all made of. We are all different but we are all made of the same. ’
