    STATEMENT




  In my work I often use drawings relating to the human figure, lines around the body, fabric structures applied to the body, my goal is to produce an object offering different lectures between the figurative and the abstract, going back and forth, unresolved and open to the potential of a fluid perception, go figure...

  The finished work has a sculptural dimension with a decisive edge much like in a bas-relief."


  Over the years I produced works with wood, metal, paper, wire and charcoals. One material constant in my works is the resin which is applied with different casting techniques, often born out of experimentation and necessity to bring forth the initial idea.

  As a visual artist I am open to different series of work, keeping the creative process fluid with ideas and explorations, unattached to a partcular style, the challenge I seek is often in the nature of the craft.
