The murals made with plaster on wall or wooden plates applied with a pastry bag, follow a baroque ornamental aesthetic in the invoice and preciousness for the detail. Influenced by the design of baroque-style architectural stuccoes, the pieces propose tensions between construction, durability and the false image based on resistance, decoration, decadence and ostentation. Appearance and reality. The uncomfortable truth is coated of appearance –with lights- all pleasant but that requires a closer look. The material is resistant to change but after all is malleable, revealing layers and inner mechanisms.
