From the university, Javier Bravo de Ruedas has had an intense link with this technique over the years. However, on this occasion, the artist expiates that exhausting memory of the millions of pieces of paper that he had to cut throughout his career, treating the collage as an alternative to the process he follows in other projects of his artistic practice: on the one hand, to the detailed planning required by ceramics, with careful sketches and modeling and, on the other hand, his paintings on canvas, where he elaborates an abstraction full of symbols.
