Definition of landscape is a recurrent event throughout art history where our notion of topographic and morphological information predetermines the setting and ambiance of a particular idiosyncrasy. Understanding such phenomena as a paradox of human existence and very much so, of human nature. In the same measure, Key Black Series is a vivid landscape of specific morphologies which originate from aleatory drawings associated to various archetypes such as Tauromaquia Series and Roman Portrait Series. The visual exercise of weaving formal elements, germinates a rich tapestry of familiar sounds which can unwillingly provoke a sensation. The work is purposely inclined in this direction of confronting and colliding iconography of different origin in order to stress organic value as an intrinsic quality of recognizable landscape.
