Art Description

Sculpture: Glass, Latex on Glass.

My experience and training in clinical psychoanalysis has left a strong imprint on my artistic and social vision.
The construction of my works is driven by the questioning that arises in me before the subject and consequently the need to investigate their fragmentation, their body and the connection with the world they inhabit.
I investigate intuitively using non-conventional materials.
I build bodies. Appealing to the material’s fragility I emphasize that primary, human fragility.
I make it possible for their marks, scars, fibers and connections to appear.
At the creation, I “Illuminate what is hidden to us”, as a narrative of the body, I color, materialize and break it, “metaphorising” the fragmentations of the body and the subject.

In a “tramp of flash”, the brightness of a piece of glass on the ground dazzled me.
The material has its own history, its own tale.
A tale that lets us read a social context, where it belongs, its lineage.
It has a symbolic impression. Plate numbers, makes of cars, provenance maybe seen.
The marks in the material are deep, are indissoluble and necessary; underlying the subject
The fragmentation of the glass is the consequence of an act of violence, fate, an accident, etc.
On its surface, , we can "look at ourselves," because it creates a mirror effect. We are identified.
That mirror reflection evokes a word. It makes us talk.
Therefore, it triggers the talk.
It's beautiful, it looks like a precious stone, shines, glints.
It invites us to touch it.
It cuts.
