For Ramiro González Etchagüe, the sense of void is a trigger, a feeling that accompanies him and which, in his works, is used as a possibility to interpret potentialities related to the paradigm of uncertainty as a portal, driving him into new searches based on proposals established as pretexts of the landscape for the representation of ideas or sensations. He uses simple elements to construct complexities that consider or translate counterpoints between space and time, place and “non-place”, subject and object, in his desire to materialise the impossible against a backdrop of absence. Compression and displacement, metaphor and metonymy are concepts that haunt and constitute the effects of the incompleteness he tries to resolve or explore
