"I once read that a common way to talk about emotions or personal problems is through the use of animals or fantastic creatures. By using these beings we allow ourselves to speak freely and without complexes. This text practically defines the series of works of what is for me my first personal exhibition. With "Horse, Rabbit, Ghost, and Satan", I have tried to make myself an autoradiography, to see how each element I have decided to create works in order to explain and draw it. My horse gallops, my rabbit licks, my ghost dances and my satan sets fire.
