Artist's Statement

My work combines images and materials, photo-based sculptures and paintings, that speak to mirage, memory, desire, loss, anticipation and freedom, steeped in and surrounded by a car accident that resulted in damaged to her eyesight since 2002.
I often work between the contemporary and the classical, as a reflection of health and sickness, of pain without injury, and of damage without awareness. On the whole, through my work I try to give life to concerns of our collective memory which appear to be buried but is actually a part of the portrait of our times.
I believe art is not founded on a specific technique, I believe it has to do with the symbolic properties presented by objects materials and the relationships it finds with the context they inhabit. I am interested in conceptual strategies that have the body as an object of study and as a medium to approach to memory and trauma.
