Artist Statement
I approach photographs I have taken as a residue of an experience that leads me either into or out of the surface of the image.
I am searching the interstices, the gaps.  I excavate, I veil and make interventions with different materials until images become drawings, I find the shadows of empty space or a kind of repetitions, expansions or concealments that bring me back to the surface of the image again and again. Hoping to find something, it always returns as an impossibility, a fiction at loss.
What confuses –the jungle´s entanglement - is a pretext to explore the visual field and problems about representation.
