"The graphic work, from almost all its variants, is always assumed as a serial work and for this reason, its artistic value is often underestimated. I consider that a large part of the richness of the work is in the creative process that entails its realization.

My intention is the search for this point of originality; with various variations that start from the same matrix that never stops transforming. Iron, copper, aluminum. All living materials, which are not only subject to their own form or to my intervention; but also to oxidation, to its only deterioration process, and sometimes also to the accident, where all of them will be part of the final result.

There is no going back, the initial matrix dictates the way for me. The forms, the oxides, the acids that affect it and alter it, creating an indivisible whole. For me that process is the work itself, putting it on paper is only its consequence, an attempt to capture what is ephemeral; to stop time". Cecilia Morales
