If I start from a social base, my practice examines the mechanisms of contemporary society through hidden narratives of current political, social and economic structures, reflecting their state from their limits through an investigation of the paradoxical relationship between the real and its representation, presence and absence, original and copy, collection and rearrangement.

Which question or theme is central in your work?

The differences between the value and the price of the artistic product through an investigation based on search methodologies for materials from the daily context, their collection, reinterpretation, manipulation and intervention as a conceptual object from a plastic investigation through the combination of various media. : writing, drawing, image creation, video and installation, depending on the nature of each project.
