ARTIST STATEMENT


Images exist for those who observe them. They are exhibited, go viral, and are displayed to establish identity. Yet, many others are stored away or discarded without the chance to transcend. I strive to rescue them and give them a second chance. I offer them the illusion of being reborn. That's why I've developed my personal artistic exploration using collage as a technique.

I'm highly observant, curious. I've always stopped to observe what happens around me; I'm deeply attracted to human behavior. The small things in everyday life, workers, ordinary people who go unnoticed, are a source of inspiration for me. I enjoy telling stories full of visual meaning and conceptual construction. I aim to express the protagonist's reality through rhetoric. I use chromatic contrast to replicate life's dialectics: light and darkness, good and bad, happiness and its opposite.
