Entry Description

The story of these pictures is characterized by absence, narrated by silent atmospheres and lonely melancholic hotel rooms. These are spaces that remain on hold, suspended in time, between presence and absence. Holes expresses a crystallized reality through sheets, faces and empty rooms. Figures absorbed in an impenetrable vacuum as is the absence of time, temporariness and loneliness as a universal human condition. The beds are unmade and the sheets are open to narrate stories that talk about lost moments and instants gone by that recall the traits and the looks of my characters.
