Artist  |  Poet  |  Researcher  |  Professor


Objects and Poetry are the focus of my creative proposal. My artworks are poetical objects, shapes, and narratives, metaphorically emulating human relationships full of passion, love, and unfulfilled desire. Regardless of their differences, I put them in conflict and dialogue throughout the process and result.
My practice is a fertile, marshy, and malleable landscape in which I investigate [i]materiality, [in]visibility, and emptiness in mismatches and imagination. All the created compositions and stories are incomplete and explore their inaccessible, misunderstood, and hazy features.
I emphasize the importance of stories imprinted and expressed in various media such as sculpture, installation, and artist books in the atomization of time. As a result, I propose poetical projects conceived as matter and narrative, implying a flow of bodies, objects, and words. These sculptural images begin with a desire to share an implicit story in which disappearance, inadequacy, and ephemerality define them. I propose an "Epoché" as a positive frame of mind. I use creative restraint procedures such as erasure to achieve illegibility, invisibility, and inaccessibility. The lyrical and sensorial objects that result are the byproducts of these processes.
