Painter and illustrator. I like exploring and observing and I am inspired by new surroundings and cultures. I was artist in residence in the Drawing Center: ”Taller 7" ( www.taller7.com ) in Medellin, Colombia, and there I researched the collective visual memory of Brazil in the Photography Archive of the Mario Andrade Library during my art residence in "Estudio Lamina", Sao Paulo ( www. estudiolamina.com.br ).More recently I have lived three months in Brittany in an art residency of Les Ateiers de Plessix-Madeuc (www.Lesateliesduplessixmadeuc.com) and spent 1 month painting in a residency in the cultural centrer Lieu-Commun in Toulouse. Since 2010 I explore the dialogue between photography, painting and memory (2009 Facebook | Internet Intimacy 2010 | Analogue Shot 2012) and since then I mainly work with the concept of a visual archive of images from a collective memory based on family photography ("Viva la familia" - Family Portrait, Colombia 2012 | Soap Opera, Mexico / Spain 2012 | Memoria Lucida, Sao Paulo 2013). My work often deals with found imagery (as in magazine ads, TV Screen shots, antique newspapers and old photographs) and deals with the notions of body – portrait – identity as well as the aspects of public versus private and the commercialization of the body; the works in their conjunction - create a dialogue between photography, digital culture and traditional painting. I am currently researching the interrelationships between portrait, memory and identity in Brazil and France.
