One of my last artworks is the installation ”Selfportrait”, a good description of my destiny. Like Blake, Michaux, Sabato and other major intelectuals I was fascinated since my early youth by both literature and art.
When I imagined this installation I thought that two elements could be very fitted to describe my dual spiritual adventure: my typewriter (I used it untill 20 years ago to write some of my best poems, including ”Wall and Neutrino. The Poet in New York”) and my small copy after Vermeer’s masterpiece, ”The Art of Painting”.
That’s why even my first novel, ”Esto’s Lover”, is dedicated to a Ianus bifrons character, the famous Argentine writer, Ernesto Sabato. I want to express him my whole gratitude for accepting this project. I’m very impressed that at his age, 98 years old, he is waiting with great interest the Spanish version of this love story.
