My work stems from silence and a certain awareness of being part of something existing far beyond our understanding. I would like to claim the role of intuitive knowledge, impermanence and contingency in a world of infinite possibilities.

In the current state of things, so full of instability, it might be a moment to slow down to notice where we stand as intuitive, emotional and affective beings. The apparent power of reason seems to prevail over all aspects of our lives – the limitations of orthodox categorical affirmations prevent us from perceiving the hidden part of our own capacities and the impossibility to frame the ever-changing world.

In opposition to the supremacy of exteriorization, the excessive amount of images, noise and accumulation, I try to reduce the elements of my work putting special emphasis on the  process of perception rather than on conceptualising it –it’s through our senses that we have a deeper comprehension of ourselves and of the world.

I also give importance to the space and light in which most of my work is articulated, beyond its physical boundaries.

Fabric, stone, photograph, drawing or found materials endowed with a symbolic meaning associated with a historical and materialistic reality rather than metaphorical are the main media I use and empty space is almost always present.
