Statement

Based on my own experience of feeling attached to my possessions, I began to investigate the relationships that people develop with the objects that surround us, the need to hold on to things and the fine line between possession and obsession, being most interested in the line established between what is considered normal and sick behavior, rethinking the parameters that separate one from the other.

From this personal experience, I began addressing the issue in a more general way, focusing mainly on everyday actions as they relate to different ways and reasons for accumulating, ranging from the need to preserve memories to others such as collecting.

Currently, in addition to using the object as the central theme of my work, I also use it as a narrative element to talk about and discuss other topics that interest me.

Attachment, accumulation, fear of emptiness, obsession, the concept of possession and memory are all key words for my art.

I create my art with the emphasis on painting, however I combine it with other techniques such as drawing, screen printing, transfer and even the presence of physical objects, creating installations where the different elements and techniques feed off each other, marking the rhythm of the viewer’s focus. Another characteristic of my pictorial research is the use of what you could call “non-noble” material and techniques, such as notepads, pieces of paper I find from old books, pages, tickets, etc., even intermingling basic techniques that we all learned during our art education to give the piece a sense of ordinariness, luring the spectator in by using familiar elements.
