"This third volume of Conceptions is dedicated to the feminine figure. Its roots could be found in pin-up girls, adding to it the self-determined point of view of the femenine world. But it is more a search for the ideal of beauty, an unattainable beauty, which has always been sought, not only in pin-ups but also in ancient Greek culture and even in Mother Goddess prehistoric figures. The masculine body could equally guide us to this goal (it has done so in other times), but in our society the meaning of an unreachable dream is stronger when talking about feminity. And, generally, my work leans on the infinite richness of nuances that this universe provides."
