artist statement

         The images I make are always inspired by human experiences and relationships. I am particularly interested in time and memory. I work creating so that I can remember. I see my body as a container of emotions: all can be shown but all remain hidenIn my personal work I usually draw portraits of my relatives treating them as selfportraits, because they took part on my creation. The size of my pieces is very small or medium, as I often imitate old miniatures.

 

I use familiar objects as portraits of souls, reflecting and throwing out feelings of fullness or emptiness. I mostly combine drawing and engraving, proposing examples of vases that keep an atmosphere that was once felt versus vases unable to keep: recipients filled by holes. Now the vase is a container of emotions: all can be kept and also all may be gone. I work in this duality because one thing cannot exist without its opposite.

I love and enjoy to remember. Remembering is thinking. Thus, I create things preventing myself from the oblivion. Hope my work prevents others from forgetting as well: we are all recipients and  memories  are everything we may contain.
