VIEW IN MY ROOM
The Mediterranean Sea has been the means of communication par excellence of several of the great cultures of three continents. The eight winds that cross it have served the inhabitants of this area for naval commerce and conquest, marking the changes of seasons and the direction of the currents that even today help pateras to cross their waters in search of a refuge or a dream.Sculpture in bronze and wood by Aramis justiz.

STATEMENT I am an artist because I have always felt drawn to what humans are capable of expressing and creating with their hands, to the point that my own hands have been my main tool of expression throughout all of my artistic career. I work in visual arts in general, and even though throughout the years I have been more dedicated to sculpture, I also express myself though printmaking and photography, as well as any other means that inspires my sensitivity. To express myself, I have used all the means and materials that have been available to me at every stage of my life, and I think that each technique or material is a language that allows some ideas or emotions to be better expressed than others. Coming from a country where modern technologies and materials are in short supply, I have used traditional ones, combining them on many occasions to enrich the final result. In recent years, I have integrated digital techniques to my communicative resources in art. My creative process is diverse and has gradually changed over time, adjusting to the needs of each moment and idea. However, I generally prefer to approach the final work as directly as possible, because I think that the emotion of taming forms little by little until they express my ideas is something invaluable that is reflected in the work. Every moment is unique, each decision is permanent, every strike of the hammer, chisel or gouge is the result of an impulse or state of mind that is not repeated. It’s like taking a snapshot with a camera; you can never take the same photo twice, or carve a woodcut the same way twice. The enjoyment of the adventure of creating art, beyond the result itself, has largely defined the way I work. I sketch out only the bare bones in order to capture the idea. I prefer carving to modelling, ink to pencil, that which is direct and definitive. There is no escape from being an artist. The ideas that grow in my mind have to be expressed one way or another, and in turn everything around me generates ideas, concepts that scuffle to emerge into the real world in the form of art. That's why I have transitioned during my career from the figurative to the abstract and back to the figurative, from sculpture to photography, printmaking and digital art. I like that, in general, my works transmit tranquillity, harmony and spiritual peace, three emotions that are in short supply in the tumultuous world we live in, and which help us be better people.
