About:

Painting for me starts with the awakening of the day. I work with the  idea of the canvas functioning as a poetic diary in which a non-linear narrative arises that consists of the recycling of memories, registrations, conversations, found objects, materials and metaphors. This diary is like a jigsaw puzzle never to be finished. The pieces are ideas that come in fragments and create on the canvas their new meaning in relation to the other pieces and the viewer. Within this game I try to keep a loose, direct and transparent attitude at any time. I embrace my dissatisfaction which can lead to the urge to constantly construct, deconstruct and reconstruct  the painting in order to break free and gain a deeper understanding of what I painted. I get triggered by the trivial characteristics of everyday  life and the symbolic relationship that we have with the things surrounding us.
