ARTIST STATEMENT

My works are generally autobiographical and focused on themes including impression, perception, space and belonging.

I believe in what I see, and in that human chaos, I look for a form of communication, a visual metaphor, devoted to re-create and present concepts formed on heuristic methods.

Using only the color black, I intend to gauge the space that occurs between two elements, in order to achieve balance of shapes through mastering the black and the space around it (white) –– because there is entropy within them.
