Entry Description: From the portrait of architectural elements as facades of buildings and interiors, I search a plastic abstraction and a formal development from the photographed motive. This way, the eye of the spectator stands before the pieces of the series, forced to make a cognitive effort; apparently he is faced with a pure geometric recreation –formal-, yet, by knowing it is photography, his gaze seeks to identify a real and known space –facades, interiors, etc…- in the photographed subject.
To achieve this, the strategy used is the fragmentation of the photographed element, which from the part, the whole must be (re)built. As Roland Fischer claims, “[…] when fragmenting the building’s skin, architecture becomes geometry, shapes, referring to the urbanism of a stereotyped but however spectacular society.
