(Barcelona, Spain, 1964)
"As my grandmother used to say: "As long as you have fun and you're not hurting anyone, do what you want." And that's what I do."
All my sculptures are unique, irreplaceable and unpredictable as every part which compose them, then with so many scrap I accumulate it is impossible to know what figure will appear later. It happens that I see a golfer where others see a broken hammer. Or that an old car carburetor appears before my eyes like an elephant walking. It must be my brain that works this way and thanks to this I can see other worlds which are in this one and wich entertain and stimulate me; and that’s what I intend to share. It is a question of playing, of seeing beyond the object that you have in front of you, and suddenly that hanger turns into arms or bicycle handlebar. That paintbrush into a fish. Or these four chair legs into Pinocchio. That’s the magic of the objects: they gather on my studio table, mixing with each other and a figure eventually ends up by emerging. And without ceasing to be what they have always been, they take on new significance in the eyes of the beholder. As my grandmother used to say: "As long as you have fun and you're not hurting anyone, do what you want." And that's what I do.
