Life experience and observation of nature are the main sources of ideas for my work. Mostly non-representational, the artwork is made on paper, some molded into three-dimensional shapes, assembled inside translucent paper boxes or envelopes. The positive image is groupings of figures with random mobility since they aren’t fixed, evoking how the perception of reality seems to be composed of different parts, such as: beliefs, memories, sensations, and when for example memory fades, or something new is learned, the perception of reality can change. The same with nature, although I consider it a unit, it can be perceived as a set of connected elements interacting in permanent transformation and growth.

In my artwork I explore concepts of time, perception, form, and balance, by creating open-ended images, mainly through the physical movement of the artwork itself in a playful and game-like context, such as puzzles. Harmonies and tensions arise from the various exchanges between colors, patterns, positive and negative spaces, geometric and organic shapes. When you look at the artworks, you see them for the first time, every time, because what creates and completes them always changes, like the light and the forms that merge and interact.
