Statement:


The series Secret Garden proposes the representation of an alternating world that combines, on the one hand, to the concrete reality, and on the other hand, memories, collective unconscious and fictions. This world is an overlapping accumulation of outer and inner elements united by philosophical concepts that "fictionalize" the landscape; these images have a moving quality, as if they had been taken by a boy who when walking by a footpath found that their dreams had taken the control. It is well as the Secret Garden is constructed, devises of a special place where you really perceive yourself as you are; somewhere hidden where only oneself is capable to find.
