Art is created with thought and is built with hands. In Art there are no borders, it is universal, but there are territories. Mio is the green Galicia of 'carballo' and ‘castaño’; The blue of Cantabrian, Atlantic, Minho and Sil. My territory is also the yellow, red and brown of the 'soutos' and 'carballeiras' – oak and chestnut woods. My world is color, smell and touch. My sculptures are to feel, to transmit. I need to come to you to complete the resurrection. My own and the wood, which never dies. That only transforms with the passage of time. That mutates from inert matter to living sculpting body. The wood rescues me, the wood is the life.
