About

Through art I seek to share my particular view about the state of our planet, human beings and the relationship between the two, with the idea of creating stories that lead us to recover nature as an example of ethical culture.

 

For some years now, the theme of nature began to infiltrate my artistic production. From various forms of representation of nature, I went to work with situations affecting its preservation, contingent aspects which I worked under three specific sub themes: "Water", "Food" and "Land". Derived from that process, I am currently researching the impact on Earth in its entirety, resulting of human activities and its sphere of knowledge. The project, "Effects of the Anthropocene and the noosphere on the Earth" specifically addresses issues such as: migration, the biodiversity crisis, time as a measure of power, climate change and the impact of economics and technology in the human sphere, among other topics.

The way I work combines the rigor of methodological research of a subject and the poetics that results from the reflection of those findings. Therefore, my repertoire of materials is very extensive and ranges from traditional supports such as bronze, resin, metal, polymers and textiles, to the use of the soil and air contaminants. To enrich the dialectics of my proposal, I use as peripheral disciplines to sculpture, video, installation, interventions, ready-mades and documentation, among others.

My artistic work is inserted in a social dimension that interrogates the reality and its contrasts, with the intent of provoking awareness that may have an impact on the health of the planet and human beings.
