Artist Statement

In large black and white compositions, I explore the world of shadows, manipulating them to suggest an absent reality. I endow them with substance by detaching them from the source and assigning them the role of a mirror, I create images and scenarios not through form but through projection. My aim is to deceive one's senses and present a phantom world, where shadow is a comment rather than an alibi.

The works are usually large scale and consist of several autonomous panels, which are placed, as they are completed individually over time, on either side of a central composition. Created, eventually, is an interior space that invites the spectator to walk through it, or a frieze that runs the circumference of the entire room.
