THE ART OF SCIENCE
The objective of scientific experiments is to find plausible and rational explanations for phenomena, but not to find the beauty hidden in it. And why not...?
Iwas born in Madrid in 1977. During my study Biology at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid I discovered my passion for science. I obtained a Master degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and then continued my academic education with a European Doctoral Thesis in the field of Biophysics.

During my academic work by coincidence I discovered a totally different side of science: it being a source of beauty and art. Working and playing with light interacting with physical matter I found and perfected a spectacular way to capture the surprising beauty that can be found inside scientific experiments.

Creating my work, I start with making photographs of the interaction between atoms and molecules with light. To carry out my work I need to develop various experimental set-ups based on the use of different types of lights: laser light from the UV-visible until the infrared light spectrum, led and different optic items as optical lens, optic microscope, mirrors to direct the light and play with it, diaphragms and prisms to focus or diverge the light in one or several points of the physical matter. In these photographs the different phenomena of light interaction through matter are captured on a molecular level such as scattering, reflection, fluorescence, phosphorescence. The matter used ranges from object surfaces (inorganic materials as metals, different textures and alloys of them) to biological samples such as proteins, enzymes, cells (animal and plant), fruits, tissues (animal and plant), micro-organisms et cetera. These photographs I then process and manipulate digitally in an artistic way.

The resulting art is a form of digital impressionism, a cross-over where the world of photography meets the world of painting…
The high-end quality of my prints is a result of close collaboration with Dutch art studio 'Re-Art', a leading fine art print studio for artists, museums and art galleries. Re-art is a founding member of the Giclée Printers Europe association ('GPE'). Master Printer and founder Marcel Salome is an international authority when it comes to art printing. Because of his extensive knowledge of reproduction photography, lithography, art printing and color management he knows how to get results that competitors are still unable to match. My art prints are available in various sizes and both as Giclée Prints on art paper as well as Chromaluxe HD prints on aluminum.

Giclée art printing is a modern way of printing, aimed at meeting the highest requirements of artists and art collectors. Giclée technique means that several layers of high quality acid free ink is applied on art print paper or canvas. This concept of multi-layer printing can give the art print the actual 'feel' of a painting. Printed on heavy Hahnemuhle art paper my works get a beautiful warm look and you keep looking as if it were a painting.

Chromaluxe is the result of a revolutionary process that leaves the existing forms as lambda prints, plexiglass variants, epoxy and prints on dibond far behind. The basis for this printing technique are aluminum panels, which by means of heat-technique (sublimation) are provided with water-resistant inks to be contained in the top layer. The result is spectacular: a superior final product that has no equal in terms of contrast, unparalleled intensity and depth of colors, durability and longevity. My (digital) art form is very suitable for the Chromaluxe printing technique. If you are looking for a sensational modern and highly exclusive art work, this is your choice...
