Atlantis, a city that "disappears" from the face of the earth, has been cited since the Greek philosopher Plato mentioned it in the dialogues of Timaeus and Critias.

In the work "ATLÁNTIDA" myth and fiction meet. Here we are faced with 16 paintings that together recreate a fragmented account of the remains of a building in Guayaquil-Ecuador in the process of being demolished. The invoice of each piece alludes to a topographical study contrasted by suggestive forms, which invite you to reflect on the representation of a lost territory and the fragility of memory.
