Along with sculptures made of cast aluminum, drawings and photographs intervened with paint and new sculptures made of resin, wood and plaster are shown. His photographs consist of images of his immediate surroundings, mainly of his studio, in which elements that belong to his trajectory are evident, such as construction and certain uses of light, color and space. On them he makes interventions with painting that, questioning the medium itself, underline or qualify these aspects, emerging equivocal images between their quality of representation and their condition of sign.
As for the sculptures, Irazu has traditionally used an assembly technique to articulate various materials. On this occasion he resorts to a material such as resin to cover without hiding objects that are later assembled into sets defined by their material unity. Some of these sets are intervened with paint giving them a new skin, which, as in the case of photographs, abounds in this search for a radical ambiguity.
