"Common things are my sustenance, the more banal a thing is the more I am concerned with it." - Jean Dubuffet

Ayamonte, a small town on the banks of the Guadiana river in Andalucia is in a process of change and development. There is both demolition and renovation behind fine 18th Century facades. I am fascinated by crumbling masonry, wild arabesques of electric cables, sheets of rusting corrugated metal. I have given myself the problem of how to translate the images I collect here into paintings.
