If Julio asked me to title his latest collage, I would call this one “Solipsism, or the view that the self is the only thing known to exist”. I like it. Especially since, like often happens with one’s images, I did not instantly recognise myself. Obviously I was not there Äìthis is what these images are about, after allÄì but I did doubt it, for a negligeable split second. Have you ever wondered if you are here or there when in front of a mirror?
