Diego, papito, papá Pinillos, Before the past takes everything away, I would like to share with you some images that have stuck in my head. Actually, they all talk about the past, so don’t feel the need to trust them. Inevitably they will disappear. They are only representations. Ideas about you. Or rather, reproductions of

Down beneath the shimmering surface, our urchin was waking from his cozied slumber. Nestled between slowly quivering rocks, pulled by the ebb tide. As caustics danced across his barbed back, he let the larking swell bristle his outstretched spines, ringing out light melodies as they chattered together. He would find a tall perch, and propel himself into a

Things are changing in Miami.

No matter what, it’s always there. It’s strange how something massively experienced, an ordinary topic, is contemplated as informal discourse. Small talk. And how do we speak of something that is always there no matter what? With short sentences, short pauses, and simple adjectives. The paintings in this show

Nosotros, los humanos, a través de todos nuestros sentidos, constantemente experimentamos el clima. No importa qué, siempre está ahí. Es extraño cómo algo masivamente experimentado, un tema ordinario, se contempla como discurso informal. Pequeño parloteo. Y ¿cómo podemos hablar de algo que siempre está ahí, sin importa qué? Con frases cortas y pausas cortas y adjetivos simples. Las
