“Through art, everyday life can be broken. You can see another different perspective that allows us to enter another reality that apparently had no meaning. Our daily life is charged not only with a great poetic force, but also with a symbolic one. The personal world that surrounds us is not always visible or palpable, our domestic scenes are also the reflection of our memories, our memory, our absences and our most intimate feelings. My work reflects my relationship with the spaces where I have lived or imagined, spaces where people exist only in their absence, seemingly anonymous spaces that hide a great emotional and autobiographical charge, places where images become symbols of my reality.”
