Project: MIND THE GAP. April-December 2014. This project began to take shape in London, thanks to the Krasner-Pollock Foundation Grant. In the beginning “Mind the Gap” was conceived as a series of paintings in which the famous warning phrase issued to tube passengers became an excuse to keep on investigating my artistic discourse through fissures and divisions considering “gap” as an extension of its meaning. Nevertheless whilst surveying these ideas I realized a new necessity of formulating the work inspired by the “GAP” (with all its connotations) with a very different perspective of what at the beginning inspired my paintings ( I wasn’t thinking regards the tube lines neither its colours but in it's literal meaning; the actual "gap” itself (the distance between the train and platform). I began to think in installations with painted timber, yellow and grey cotton or other fabric, in which the yellow line that appears in the edges of the platforms plays an important roll as an element that both separates and advises.
