The Modesto great Cuixart described in the work of Monica Ochoa saying: "It's made with a pen because she sees the light sculptural ability, his big secret. The fundamental difference between painting and photography is the painting looks inside out and photography, from outside to inside. Here lies the talent of knowing how to use the eye of art as a mirror of self humanized and not of observed reality. "
"The Criling, and technical, can fantasize that reality and mold it to our liking, evade the merely apparent and true to form other universes in which we actually establish. Sculpted with light magical worlds inhabited by characters birthed from our hearts, characters that are created through images that our brain and soul lovingly molded to place them in that other reality that we like and where they remain for ever creating a different world that aspires to be complete. To this end I have spent more than twenty years of my life to photography and I have not traveled more than a tiny part of the way I hope someday I confirm my parallel universe where you can live finally over.
