After so many painting projects throughout the years, I now have a huge collection of paint stained work clothes. It seemed incredible to me how quickly my clothes were covered in paint. Therefore I came up with the idea to start this new experiment called Ropa de Trabajo (Work Clothes). I realized it could be another way to create something that evolves on it’s own without me controlling the final result. As in many of my projects during the past few years, I found it interesting the delegation of the role of the artist as spectator in the creation of his own artwork.
