Artwork Statement

My work is developed from the analysis of cultural traces and sediments that we can find in everyday spaces such as homes. I am interested in how the individual presents himself, symbolically, in contexts where he can control the arrangement of space and its reading. I think that the problems, both of art and of the future of humanity, are constant and banal, so simple and unsolvable that they are constantly reborn. It is in everyday settings where its true dimension can be perceived. Social isolation and its nuances have manifested itself in multiple ways in everyday life, but its overcrowding at this time leads us to question our hyper-connected existence in the face of the loneliness of confinement.
