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 some may remain hidenIn my personal work I usually draw portraits of my close ones treating them as selfportraits, because they all took part on my creation. The size of my pieces is usually very small, 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. I work on vintage objects such as cameos where, back in the late 18th Century, people used to save memories in, such as portraits of their lovers. Eyes looking. Apples raised. I give this old pieces a new meaning and life using the same old techniques. I propose objects that hold a story, creating images that are surrounded by a very special ambience. I give examples of vases keeping an atmosphere that was once felt versus vases unable to keep: recipients filled by holes. Now the vessel is the 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.
