My eyes channel, my soul vibrates, and a new world unveils. My work is poETICAL and poLITICAL. I make art to celebrate life and repair shame-oppression-abuse. I believe in art as a bridge between the known and the unknown, leading us all to the core of ourselves. 'Unveil' is my motto. I'm on a quest for meaning and wonder. I'm a multidisciplinary artist - I need to express myself in different ways to feel whole. Women, Memory and Time are the main interlacing threads I use to look into my favourite theme: RELATIONSHIPS. Delving into the complexity of humankind and rejecting simplification. CONNECTIONS are my lead in exploring and understanding the world we live in, as I see everything (and everyone) interrelated in some way, and I advocate for cooperation in place of competition. My art practice is research-based and grounded in my constant interest in society and psychology. I engage in conceptual projects that use symbolic language and have multilayered meaning. My poetical and political urges are fuel to my artwork, informed by the claim that 'the personal is political'.
