  7. Descents (1991-nowadays)

Descents (1991-present)

I began this series overwhelmed by the images disseminated in the press of the Balkan Wars, by reinterpreting them as an echo of biblical iconography of pain. The series has passed through three different phases, but only the first two have been exhibited. Also, a lot of its stages have formed scenes that I’ve photographed as independent works (see Photography). The first phase, finished in 1992, was shown at La Regenta Art Center (Las Palmas, 1992) and in the Museo Barjola (Gijón, 1993). The second phase, finished in 2002, was presented at Hospedería Fonseca (Salamanca, 2003) and at Palacio de Los Serrano (Ávila, 2004). The third phase, is still under construction, and apart from reconverting some of the poses, I am also covering their surfaces with colored wax, providing a new anatomic modelling (see Works in progress: anatomies).
