Having been a photographic artist for over thirty years, the tools I use to do my job have had some dramatic changes along the way. Collage was always part of my work and poetry was never to far either. I like images that speck for them selves, but some times written words over images can take the work to an entire different level. I even like words that create textures and bring some noice in to place where text is no longer valuable for the information but energetic reasons that go deeper than just conscious reasoning. I like to write with my mouse and my left hand to make my handwriting erratic and write over the image respecting not the lines or squares of a notebook, but the image I connect to the words written on the piece. A word that you can read sends you a message that will change the way you see the image. A hidden word the tones and lines of an image will connect more with you feel when you look at the image. Once you notice the words two things can happen: you can deacodefy the message or not. It really doesn't matter. The image will never be the same again. Text in this images is in my native language: Spanish. Despite my efforts texts may include gramatical or orthographical mistakes or in some cases may be imposible to read, but in all cases I believe to make a significant addition to the images here presented.
