Artist's Statement

I work with a diversity of media and themes ranging from photography to sculpture and installation. Through them I question the social position imposed on us by the race for life and survival. People who do not want to hear or see the struggle against time, both physical and biological, and the insatiable race against others climbing for position in life.

I view the human body from different symbologies, which together with the use of pins, needles, spurs, and the hands of clocks (all metals), form the scenario on which I project my thoughts. I establish a game with the viewer and her emerging feelings where docility and aggressiveness are two sides of the same coin and in this case the same artwork. Recently I’ve tried to cover almost all states of human beings and their relationship with technological advances.
