"I think of my paintings and drawings as constructions, which include some elements that are recognizable and some that aren’t, creating a composition that in some way loses the thread of a narrative logic, but that in itself maintains a stability. I believe that painting and illustration are prisms that let the recognizable and the ambiguous pass through." --Santiago Salvador Ascui
