There is nothing to be afraid of

“You have to die a few times before you can really live”

Charles Bukowsky

Thinking and reflecting about different life situations, I have been asking myself about what is the beginning and what is the end.

We are dealing all the time with this two concepts in  our feelings, emotions, relationships, situations and even the life.

When something ends what  are the memories we keep? And when something start are we talking about a real start or it is just the contination of other end.

I started working in this project shameless  and giving myself to you as the most fragile person.

I have been afraid but getting into my creative process I was  trying to come as close i can to my psychological recognition.

Using  the act of burning in a methaphorical way as symbol of purification. I made my own compositions of textures representing emotions, feelings, situations and frame it to keep the moment, just a moment, never pretending to define anything and giving to you this moment to find and recognize your own memories,as ghosts of the past and burn it.

 In this project I am as a Phoenix rising again and again from the death  from the ashes of my own emotions without being afraid because I know  and each end I always reborn and start  my new beginning.

Now is my moment
