"Sex is everywhere. It is with us all the time. We can't say goodbye to sex. Maybe for a short time, but it's always a part of us. So, if you make a collage, or indeed any kind of self-expression, I think sex will appear, more or less obviously, but it'll be there somewhere."

Spanish artist Jorge Chamorro first heard the term "la cascara amarga" (the bitter husk) from his Right-wing grandma, who used it to sum up people of a Left-wing persuasion who were critical of the establishment. He liked the sound of it and thought it would make an apt description of the spirit of his collages. He combines his commissioned graphic-design work with personal projects that are generally hand-made collages.
