Artist Statement

“In an attempt to immortalize particular moments, to experience again the presence of those I most admire, who inspire or have influenced me, and the places that have moved me, I meticulously recreate images that take me back to that particular ambience of nostalgia.
We are what we are, the product of our past, which remains and reveals itselfmentally through hazy re-enactments. The sharing of autobiographical content and a private universe, interspersed with discontinued narratives ant rooted in a potent interplay of photography and painting, creates emotional communication with the spectator, who is confronted with a spirit of openness, a familiar and joyous environment.
The simulation of frustrated attempts at visualizing images of the past resulted in a malleable game between revelation and concealment, generating ambiguous profundity. In a confrontation between three-dimensional and two-dimensional effects, both genders merge in a simultaneously exuberant, dynamic, and apparently chaotic composition, yet underpinned by a rational layout.
I invite you to participate in this complex game by incorporating the illusion of visual memory of particular moments of my life. You will be led through a series of passages and bifurcations oscillating between the whole and detail, which will allow you to mentally finalize the images. The awareness of this pictorial complexity is what eventually becomes the pivotal point of my work process.”
