floating dreams

I had the idea of making this work in connection with Dalí's work. At the same time, I wanted to think of a work which was more myself than inspired by Dalí. Then I decided to make an installation very close to Dalí and that the connection with him was oneiric, something connected with dreams. In this manner, like the sculpture I made in Australia, I thought about floating structures. When I thought about the connection to Dalí's structures and forms, I thought about the reflection in the water, which connected the sculptures to the museum like an umbilical cord. And there was a connection in which the contact with the sea is very important in Dalí. In most of his paintings you can observe the sea, the beach, the rocks. It was a good way to contact with Dalí. Moreover, we are in Florida, and curiously the Salvador Dalí Museum was constructed with the intention of seeing the sea. I want my work as a painter to work inside these structures that communicate —through the water and the reflection— with Dalí. To me, the sea has a lot to do with dreams.

The sea is above all obscurity. To me, this feels like dreaming and immensity. Basically, these forms, these reflections in the water, appear as a vibrating line, and they have constant movement, which feels like when you sleep there is a constant space of movement, inside dreams. And this appears like the variation of forms in the water, looking like a cerebral movement, and these reflections are always moving, changing, and they never have the same shape.
