Chile´s physical and human geography has been a great source of inspiration to me. The images that I create live at the crossroads of the real and the imaginary, the rural and the urban, the ancestral and the new. Syncretism, in its varied forms, still tinge the layers of global modernism in our Chilean daily life.
The imaginary world of Chile´s myths and legends represents a fertile ground for my imagination which borrows characters from stories heard, in versions of different hues, depending on the time and space in which they were collected.
The figurative comes naturally to me and it is evidently charged with a symbolic language, arbitrary in its interpretation, negotiated in the color scheme. However, this interplay of free interpretations aims to invite the observer to be a witness to a story that underlies his/her own personal narrative.
