Work of “Bye bye souvenir” serie
350 x 300 cm aprox.
Bye bye souvenir began to take shape in December 2020, at that time we could only move
within our own community, borders had suddenly reappeared.
While our parents (at least those of my generation) had lived this idea that the great journeys
were made a couple of times in life, we moved around the world with an ease never seen
before and suddenly all that disappears, the movement is limited to your country and
depending on the moment to your community or your city, the limits are drawn more than
ever and the borders become really palpable.
We never thought we would lose our freedom of movement, both physically and
I thought, what would I have given at that moment to be able to travel, even if it was just to
buy a horrible souvenir…
Bye Bye Souvenir… 2022
While I was thinking about what I wanted to do for an art fair in which I was going to participate, my iaia passed away and I decided to pay a tribute to her through a series of pieces that I titled “Herencias para Isabel”.
The set of pieces makes up a portrait of my grandmother through the objects in her house that most reminded me of her and the phrases that she used to tell me the most, which I have used as the title of the works.
This series is a tribute to my iaia in particular, but also a tribute to all the grandmothers and their great work within the family.
Those of us who are the children of working parents have had them as a second mother, their role is fundamental in parenting and the help they give parents is worthy of recognition.
” The Olympics” is a project focused on giving visibility to all those women who played an
important role in the history of sport and who most of us don't even know about.
There are many women who made great achievements in the world of sport, but as in other
fields, these women never had the recognition that their male counterparts did. Women like
Margot Moles, Charlotte Cooper or Gretchen Fraizer, to give some examples, will be the
protagonists of this series where, through drawings in poster format, the history of these
women will be shown.

“FOLDER” is the representation of adolescence, that moment where we establish who we are and to which tribe we belong to through customizing / decorating our folders. Collage of images, drawings and quotes through we represent ourselves, putting us in a box.

We come from a time when we believed that with our training we would get what we wanted. We had invested in careers, languages, unpaid internships. But quickly, our dream vanishes, the negatives begin when it comes to finding work. That curriculum that seemed so complete now seems full of useless things. You do more courses and you lock yourself in your study, you have to invest all your time in the search for a job, everything else is wasting time and money. Every time you are more isolated, you no longer feel connected to the university, much less to the working world and suddenly, without realizing it, you have gone from being a person full of hopes, ideas and energy, to becoming an isolated being , insecure and without strength to prove what you were worth before, a bug.
