”In making art, my purpose is always to provide input or a starting point for the development of sorts of open discourse.
I consider as mental image everything that is perceivable by the senses over different grades of awareness.
Every art practice produces a mental projection, like a sentence inserted in the text of the contemporary culture of images.
My rhizomatic idea of the artistic medium comes from the poetical practices of cut-up and collage. Through them, I put in relation ordinariness to Knowledge.
This relation starts from a specific context in which my work develops. As a result, the artwork becomes the trace of this process.
For this reason, context shapes outputs, eluding the linear idea of a recognisable style and becoming images inside the iridescent body of my work.
I am interested in the idea of action, interpreted as the generative process in art creation.
Acting generates gestures and retraceable signs in every art practice: brush strokes in painting, a linguistic gesture of appropriation art, the physicality of performance or the spatiality of sculptures and installation art.
I adopt strategies that deal with cause and effect, reverberating their influences on both the daily world and viewer perception.
I am intrigued by the cartesian doubt, which stabilises beliefs but stimulates the research of truth and the self-awareness as a rational entity.”
