WORK

I look for prints in the history of art and craftsmanship. I am interested in tracing a contemporary look around material history, creating a poetic exercise that generates a certain melancholy.

Continuing what once was and nobody knows why it stopped being. That black hole where things, tendencies or moments in history disappear, that’s where my inspiration resides.

To recapitulate different artistic movements, painting, architecture, textile design. It all conforms a matrix of reference that, in the moment of creating and making, is rearranged and taken to a piece that questions the origin of forms and their function.
