Human perception is influenced by many factors such as the symbology associated with water through different cultures, philosophy, its physics and chemistry. These studies sustain the visual creations that aims to increase consciousness about the inner value of the compound revealing its natural movement and dynamism through the interaction with light. Hyperrealism is used as a tool for research in order to share the truth of water unravelled by the artist's vision. Free from the observable references the work expands in abstract images inspired by the aforesaid visual study on the states of the molecule H2O.
