Artist statement


The collection of collages tells a story loaded with feelings of place, and people, outside the boundaries of the usual and familiar. The works are composed of phrases and raw materials that are used on a daily basis, and found in every home, respectively. Through them it becomes clear how these things can form a connection, be a form of communication, and even evoke a memory, for those who see them. In the process, the physical image transforms into a mental image through a series of internal emotions specific to each viewer, through which the viewer moves between one world and another through a sensory medium outside the boundaries of the image, and the work of metaphor begins, “An artist inspires similes and makes inanimate things feel human.”
