Statement

The main theme of my work are the spaces of human coexistence represented by our intimate spheres; interpersonal relationships, the domestic space, the sphere of the feminine, and the social space where all other spaces are framed.

Being an immigrant with all its implications, strongly marked my feeling of strangeness and led me to recurrently thematize my hybrid identity, under different forms and points of view.

I aim to understand life, and what it has of supernatural and immeasurable, to try to give it shape without giving it to it, to find a meaning without it being defining, only to navigate through small moments of meaning and approach the shores of nothingness. Just to understand and roughly outline the formless substance in which we live.

The works that are full of free associations, where you can see the contrast between style and experimentation. Works that could be described as  "thought with their hands", by the evidence  of the process´ tension and the tireless experimentation on the subject. They could be experienced as erratic, anomalous and disturbing since they transgress the normative presence of everyday spaces and reveal the essence of a new organization of the organic.
