Artist Statement
 

I consider all of my work a singular, continuous and uninterrupted drawing.

A drawing that deploys and extends itself with outcomes that are far away from it; it lays bare a parenthesis on me and my obsessions, comparable to a stream of consciousness translated into metamorphoses through the heterogeneous use of media and materials.

And by drawings, I mean works that are purely tied to the drawing as such, as well as sculptures that are born of a three-dimensional continuation of the drawing ( I replace my signs with human hair as an analogy of characteristics and attain the possibility to render it three-dimensional), and in turn, performances that are a continuation of the sculptures.

These drawings that fluidly crystallize in the various spheres of my work are dictated and characterized by an incessant sense of being out of place, by a development and growth without order pre-established project. They are an auto-generated and autonomous formalization of drawing, almost out of my control.

The use of heterogeneous materials is based on the impossibility of establishment, with the intention of creating equilibrium on the threshold of deconstruction, and with the desire to make co-exist that which naturally rejects co-habitation.
