Artist's Statement

These works are comments on contemporary society, where two anachronistic social moments or individuals coexist in the same scene, as a reflection of everyday absurdity.

The ambiguity of the textual supplements, the appropriation and manipulation of recognizable iconographic references to art history and society, are tools that help in building these visual metaphors with an intertextual spirit.

In these drawings narrative is based on irony, the joke and the anecdote as art object.
