Statement

I have the firm conviction that without challenge there is no disruption, and without disruption, there is no development, that is especially true with art.

My work is a process of constant challenge.

By choosing to use the most basic and primal graphics element, the line and imposing on myself a set of strict rules on how to use it I create compositions that seem simple at first sight but that full of complexity and movement. The technical restriction of using one continuous, uninterrupted line through the entire layout offers me an interesting challenge, resulting in compositions that have a life of their own. The use of one continuous line is also an invitation to the viewer to follow the trajectory of the stroke through the entire canvas in the form of a little game producing an interaction between art and viewer will develop into a relationship between the two.


Conceptually my inspiration comes by narrating the daily life and paying tribute to the aspects that I consider are the most important, women, life, love, playfulness and our relationship with our own environment by the use of symbology. I try to use my work as a way of creating awareness and denouncing issues that need to be addressed. I start with an idea of what I want to produce but in the process the composition starts dictating how it will ultimately look like, creating shapes, spaces, and voids that will define the entire piece of work and its message.


I take something as simple and basic as a single line and transform it into a complex narrative that will challenge you and invite you to create a relationship with it.
