When I materialise a series of diptychs, (1992) I felt that I needed, to close a thought ,to have the idea of what I wanted to express. Then I remembered that many years ago I had known the Complete Works of "Rosalia de Castro or The Pain of Life. " This Galician poet was born on February 24 1837 and died in 1885 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Some of her verses like "the edge of the Sar", will accompany - as titles, some of my works. This choice , does not mean an attempt to illustrate them. In the distance I feel that through his poetry, Rosalia follows as a lookout each of the acts of man and nature. Mistakes, successes, loves and hates, joys and resentments. An evolution of events and the wealth of images that attract my attention. There is a deep relationship between poetry and visual arts.
