  • Biography
My work consists of print, painting, sculpture and installation, with these varied media I create intimate spaces. Each element oscillates in between two status, layered gestures challenge the nature of each medium. By combining experiences’ memories with an idealistic mental space, I compose unrealistic sites. My work interrogates how a malfunctioning memory and the belief in illusions create imaginary sensations. Surface and depth, decorative and narrative elements, inside and outside location meet in an artificial nature to reveal a space that is both familiar yet strange; an uncanny space. In every project, I aim to question the state of utopia, intimacy and illusion in our sensorial everyday.
