These paintings are abstractions of natural landscapes, translated into dots and curved lines, which show cartographic cutouts of large areas, floating on another clear area that is also a cutout of infinite space. With these artworks, I propose to create tranquil scenarios that oppose possible convulsions; to extract from the map small sections, whose geometry functions as a selective display, which eliminates the turmoil and organizes the painting in a tranquility that no longer exists in the current world.
