I manifest in my artwork my experience of life. The deep attention to nature often gives me the images and sensations that I communicate in my work. Mostly non-representational, the positive image of the work is groupings of repeated figures made of paper, assembled inside translucent paper, sometimes done three-dimensionally. When the artwork is moved, the image changes since the figures are not fixed, creating new random and unpredictable compositions evoking the transformation and construction of scenarios, beliefs, and memories over time.
Even though I consider nature to be unity, I think 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 my artworks, you see them for the first time, every time, because what creates and completes them is always changing, like light and shapes that merge and interact.
