THE VIRTUAL ISLAND COLLECTION

THE VIRTUAL ISLAND (FUERTEVENTURA) represents these unique, special and contradictory sensations that forge the personality of everyone living in an island. Along my life I have established my residence in many places, always having the feelin of being just a visitor, up to falling down under the spell of the island of Fuerteventura.

What makes the island? Why does it catch you?

This collection tries to catch these subjective sensations that cause this effect that receives that special, almost tectonic, strenght in the territory of the Canary Islands, and in a totally heart-breaking way in Fuerteventura.

It is not a realistic collection, though figurative, mixing insular recognizable elements with imaginary ones, in orther to express these emotions the island transmits, it does not try to represent merely the insular landscape, but the sensations perceived living it, such as this mystical respect for the territory, this sensation of being that small under the overwhelming force of the nature.

These particular elements as, its light, its wind, its 'calima', its 'insularity', its heat, its cold, its calmness, its loneliness, are not static, the island is dynamic, unpredictable. 

The captivating force of its combination makes, in essence, the contradictory idiosyncrasy of the Island of Fuerteventura, branding the opened but distrustful, nice but modest personality of its inhabitants.

Definitively, an island is alive, and in an act of generosity without limit the nature shares it with its inhabitants, fullfilling them with life.

Thank you Fuerteventura!
