About The Artwork

I challenge and experiment with materials and seek to truly understand their qualities. I´m interested in shapes and textures of poor matter and spaces that read three dimensionally. My work reflects an intense relationship with the materials with which I am working and an intense manual work on the substance matter. It's about embracing the qualities of materials, finding pleasure in the process of doing. I am bound by a compulsive need to create things and try to find aspects of life left out of art. I´m in favor of an openess towards materials and processes and often reject more traditional materials. I work with the production process itself, mixing various media. I choose materials as I choose words when I want to write and these materials can transcend physical identity and speak for themselves. The art is born out of substance and matter and the marks made by the passage of these instruments. Mankind has to say something, but the utensils and the matter themselves speak too.

Work represented in several National and International Collections. | ABOUT MY WORK My practice incorporates notions of identity and the self as creative source, appearing as a form of memoir and subjective experience. The vision of myself and my work is covered with many layers of misty images, capturing absence and presence of my body and mind, things are partially or mostly veiled and camouflaged by a skin or a mask. I collate a reservoir of symbolic references. A tactile space dominates, aiming past languages and past stories. The pieces have parallel versions of stories and histories petrified and perpetuated as emblems and symbols, that move through different timelines, I and the "other side of the mirror". | (under construction)
