Jorge Pineda understands reality as a permanent interpretation, that is, as a mask behind which there is no definitive face, but rather a play of successive masks. What Jorge Pineda does is open the possibility of undermining the control that fantasy exerts over us by way of an overidentification with it, that is, by simultaneously embracing, in the same space, the multiplicity of elements that appear. To some extent, he projects or reflects (once again the specular matrix) the constitutional lack of the subject, which is at the same time an excessive presence of the “impossible.”
