Narrative / Spain
As an artist each project is research and is learning… I’ m interested in the material, I’m interested in the concept, one thing leads me to the other. The project is based on questions that I answer with a dialogue between the material and my hands. Since 2016 I work with fabrics, cottons and linens in particular. It was a semi-subconscious decision but since the first piece I have recovered my taste for fabric, a material that I have always been interested in. It is a material that seduces me and inspires me.
Conceptually I’ m interested in the experience, I talk about emotions, memories, environment and historical questions. I follow a feeling developing a dialogue with my work.
The pieces that I present are from the UNDER CONSTRUCTION COLLECTION, a reflection about society and politics. Created like a small containers, spaces of coexistence, looking for to express the actual distance that exist between both.
