He followed classes of Performance and Sound poetry from artist Bartolomé Ferrando.
In 2006 he was granted a scholarship for Minneapolis College of Art and Design (Minneapolis, USA) where he attended sculpture classes from artist Kinji Akagawa, with whom he deepened his wood carving technique. From that moment, wood has become a permanent feature as a material of expression in his artistic practice.

Senoner centers his sculptural research on a series of main themes, including metamorphosis, heritage, and stratification, on a symbolic and material level. With his sculptures, he delves into the relationships that connect the individual, the mutable context in which he resides, and the elements that contribute to that transformation. For his artworks, he selects and uses unique materials, mostly from animal and plant sources - including wood, feathers, lichens, fabric, beeswax - always keeping in mind their history and process of creation and evolution, while giving value to those factors. The preferred medium is wood, an essential natural element, a collector of memories, a material that allows us to read traces of time - before, during, and after the artistic process.
Senoner recalls the traditional sculptural processes in a contemporary perspective, based on the message he needs to convey, searching a language strictly connected to the concrete nature of the chosen materials and topics narrated. He tries to establish a dialogue and induce parallelism with the memories of the viewer.
