My interest to work with "cyberspace" through which you are reading the present portfolio, is a strong motivation to overcome a series of barriers intimately related to "easel painting", an old story dating back to the early days of oil painting and the emergence of the reputable flemish school . From the moment art work was conceived as a "form of investment" because it became portable and negotiable, it started having a unique added value and it related to more personal issues of endorsing family credentials in the relation of buyer and seller, the individual aspect of an artist became more and more relevant. After a long path of more than 400 years we arrive to the enigmatic 20th century where the "modern individual artist" became more important than the artwork itself, in some cases as we know the artist became the work of art himself!!! How can we explain this paradigm, very simple when the objective of cultures are individuals, we are propense to loose a colective awareness or better said a consensual language. Everything and everybody becomes relevant and when you have over 5 billion people on the phase of the earth, it can get a little tedious. Today we introduce the wonder of internet, where every little peanut like me, has something to say. Nevertheless, its not all that bad because if I have kept your attention sofar, I have achieved a great deal since the possibilities of publishing this ideas are very remote and whats worst, the possibility of somebody reading it are even more remote. I truly believe this new form of virtual communication is giving us an oportunity to do our homework and start making "common sense" once and for all.
