Artist's Statement

My work is created to contrast the perception that we have about what belongs to the natural order with dislocated structures that respond to the pressures and strains of contemporary culture. As part of this process, I build fragmentations in the organization of scientific knowledge that result in hybrids that demonstrate an ongoing clash between nature and artifice, between reality and fiction.

I am primarily interested in exposing the artifice that is implicit in any system of representation of living forms, revealing the falsehood inherent to the process of construction of knowledge in modern times and its utopias. Thus, I question the logic and rational procedures that have always been applied to classification systems, including the management of collections at museums of natural history and their predecessors, the cabinets of curiosities.
