Color Fresh @ Covent Garden

This is a series of photos that I took in the fashionable and commercial areas in London: Covent Garden, which is full of stores. And it is comment of how consumers reflects their wishes towards fashion. Also I am interest in the ephemeral of this communication. I showed this photos in a the Mexican Fashion Week called DFashion and it aims to have a dialogue with the audience about their relationship with fashion.

Irak Sky

These photographs were taken while flying above Iraq whilst on a commercial flight from Dubai to London on 29th February, 2008. I made paper planes out of yellow post-its and stuck them on the window. It is comment on the war, on the world and on the hope, and I choose to use ‘Irak’ in Spanish and sky in English. The title is macaronic, using the English word `sky’ and the Spanish spelling of Iraq, `Irak’.

This work was first shown at the Concourse Gallery in London and then in Mexico City at FEMACO (Feria México Arte Contemporáneo), with buyers from international and Mexican galleries as well as collectors.
