Landscape, in one of its meanings, is the natural space admirable for its artistic-scenographical aspect. We experience it according to our perceptual capability. We see what we know.

I am interested in the idea of nature as a cultural construction and the composition of a new landscape with other readings.

The relationship between photography and the landscape is insufficient, considering that lens cannot capture neither the experience nor its magnificence. I explore the illusory of a natural landscape image and its digital chromatic decomposition, transferring what is captured in one sense (the sight) to the codes of another system (RGB). The series introduces a dialogue between figuration/abstraction where the real and the manipulated overlaps.

These double photographs combine opposing codes that attract each other, as the perception of color through its absence or the flatness of paper through its fold.

The chromatic palettes are revealed through pleating the edges or folding for volume the print with another topography, irrupting the natural geography in parallel.

They are manual gestures to break the surface illusion and draw attention to the artifice and materiality of the photographic representation.

I emphasize this effect of dragging into the artificial field, which is given by the natural order.
