The collage universe enhances the specular dimension, where it inscribes the breaking of unity, of continuity, allowing the detail to interpret the whole. Thus, from the cut leftovers, the spectator’s subjectivity opens up to particular interpretations, new elaborations and narratives, which transcend those that motivated my creation.
The more than 100 works were born out of experimentation, curiosity, everyday life, a time that is neither linear nor progressive. I see anything potential work material, a plastic bag, an aluminum canvas, cardboard, springs, photographs, magazine and newspaper clippings, miniature models. Recyclable or not, garbage, leftovers, discarded or forgotten, it can become art . From this perspective, from uniting the disaggregated, new images and new meanings emerge.
I’m a brazilian collage artist, and since 2017 I’ve lived between São Paulo and Madrid. I am especially dedicated to mixed media and started exploring analogical collage in 2019.
Psychoanalysis was essential for me to take the risk – I left the routine of 30 years in the financial market to dedicate myself to artistic studies. That’s how I replaced the computer with scissors and paintbrushes .
My background is based on studies of arts in general, literature and psychoanalysis, in addition to my ability to observe, investigate and experiment. From this, I combined two passions – art and psychoanalysis, both capable of touching the ineffable of human existence through symbolic and imagery representation.
