CRITICAL REVIEW

Iconography, preferential figurative (relief, ronde-bosse bronze, ceramic, wood, with colour highlights) capitalizes the conceptual and expressive premises of surreal range, boosted by narrative and parodic-parabolic subtext. Existential events of the immediate environment, the daily drama, the presence of the couple in mythical projection – become transcripts with multiple metaphorical content, in plastic concentrations, which give new semantic meaning to visual formulations enshrined by time phases of universal artistic background (Egyptian antiquity, Assyrian-Babylonian or Sumerian)
