Texts and artworks are combined like the synesthesia, that show the surreal and the everyday life of dreams, from the synesthesia of music in painting, painting in words and music of the words. In their own words "Music is the poetry of the time. Painting is silent poetry. A poem is a piece of life. Every minute in life is a miracle that never repeats". This use of visual synesthesia is the art of setting memory moments randomly drawn in light of the eye that captures impossibles, to stop the time in a moment that never repeats.
Writes the images, paints the words in these books “Middle of the Night” (En la mitad de la noche) "A slice of life"(Un trozo de vida), "With
the ghastly lucidity of insomnia" (Con la lucidez atroz del insomnio), "One thousand days and a night" (Mil días y una noche), "Gathering of spiders" (Tertulia de arañas), "Journey to the end of the highway"(Viaje al corazón del final de la autopista), "An enigma written in the wind" (Enigma escrito en el viento), “Visions of Rome” (Visiones de Roma) and “The book of the impossible ones” (Libro de los imposibles).

Everyone wants to understand painting. why don’t they try to understand the song of the birds? why do they love a night, a flower, everything which surrounds man, without attempting to understand them? whereas where painting is concerned, they want to understand. let them understand above all that the artist works from necessity; that he, too, is a minute element of the world to whom one should ascribe no more importance than so many things in nature which charm us but which we do not explain to ourselves.
Todo el mundo quiere comprender la pintura.
¿Por qué no intentan comprender el canto de los pájaros? ¿Por qué a la gente le gusta una noche, un flor, todas las cosas que rodean al hombre sin tratar de comprenderlas?
En el caso de la pintura, en cambio, se quiere comprender.
Que comprendan sobre todo que el artista obra por necesidad (...) Quienes intentan interpretar un cuadro, casi siempre se equivocan.
