    My Absolut… series was nothing more than an intent to develop a work legitimizing and recognizing the work of a group of artists from the early20th Century who, in my opinion, hadn’t been sufficiently appreciated. Manipulating the (then) new currents of postmodernism—in this case, the free appropriation and artistic discourse from the history of art—I made this series, in which those artists' works are placed within a recapitulation, an iconoclastic and absolutist updating. I chose the word "absolut" referencing the ads for Absolut vodka, designed by various artists, that had appeared years earlier. Within this series, I chose out of aesthetic and conceptual affinity the artists Alexei Jawlensky, Sonia Delaunay, Alexandra Exter, Nadezhda Udaltsova, Lyubov Popova, Vladimir Lebedev, Mario Sironi, and Sophie Tauber, among others.
