    Bronze in Portfolio/Fine Art

Allegory about climate change and one of its main consequences, the desertification of ecosystems. The degradative process (mordancage) to which the negatives are damaged reveals structures that recall the behavior of the soil and plants when subjected to the effects of excessive drought and heat. 4x5 B&W negatives, mordancage and print out: xerography on a transparency from the CMY channels, and after this I transfer it on paper using solvent and an etching press. With the K channel a contact negative is printed on a transparency and is contact printed overlayed using the argyrotype.

Born in Valencia (1957). Professor of Botany at the University of Valencia. Graduated in Fine Arts, he is currently studying doctorate in Fine Arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. The objective of my work, beyond the strict artistic creation, is to deepen these concepts and to experience an artistic production based on them, seeking to sensitize the observer in the appreciation and respect for our natural environment, as we protect that of what we fall in love, and to fall in love with something or someone previously we have to know it.
