Ernesto’s practice involves the use of medical records such as X-rays or MRIs of his body as a simple way to explore the very essence of being human, deprived of any feature or embellishment that may come with society or status. Ernesto believes we are all equal in the end, regardless of the jewels we wear. However, jewels and embellishments, such as glitter, gold leaf, or diamond dust, are often present in his work along with bold colours. His love for colours represents his love for life and for our humanity.
