My works make reference to social transformations, the inherited or lost culture. I draw inspiration from the layering of time, experiences, and traces people leave behind. I have a special interest on architectural forms and random urban elements that manifest social behavior in the public space. I look for transversal meanings of things around me, questioning, prodding and teasing their connotations.
I often use my artwork as an instrument to go back and forth in time.
I turn memories and life experiences into a pathway to different considerations. My interest in exploring various material expressions, has led me to a wide-range of technical solutions. I have a special interest on ready-made objects, as well as on traditional handcrafts practices.
My art practice spans diverse media, including photography, painting, installation, public interventions, and illustration.
