Artist statement

Fine details, metaphoric references, zoology and botanical research and chimerical-like creatures live together in an amalgamation of meanings in my work.
From an always ongoing process of fragmentation and reconstruction, I reflect about the internal-external dialogue and the dichotomies in ourselves,
observing with curiosity the highlights and dark corners of humankind and all living beings and digesting them into hybrid characters.
I´m particularly interested in and investigating the figure of The Traveller, being quite nomadic myself, I conceive this character as a mirror, a synthesis and an observer of my living and memory habits in every different country that I´ve lived in.
