about the artist's works
Her latest work, the provisional architectures series, arises from the concern for man and the space she inhabits. A double language is established between the abstract background and the form that suggests two levels of reality, two different dimensions. Forms and objects of everyday life that acquire other meanings. Simple structures, strange perspectives, carbon geometries, to deal with issues of life, time, the space we occupy and the relationship with the environment and with ourselves. The tension between background and form, the game of chromatic interactions, the plastic elements (materials, textures and qualities) and the act of drawing itself, are the keys to look at my painting. It is questioned and problematized with the two-dimensionality of the canvas as if the painting aspired to become an object; in this case, a transparent architecture that evokes the inaccessible and the precarious of living, but also represents the search for our own space that invites us to “look through”.
