Description: Artist statement: My work, as if it was a prayer of sorts, is about contentment, solace and detachment - but is made from a place of hypersensitivity and anxiety. This inherent contradiction is reflective of growing up as a member of the lost generation of Spain- highly prepared and pampered people crashing into a post-recession, post-11S world. I understand my practice and the resulting pieces as places where I am in control and, consequently, can play with the idea of letting go of said control. I work with a process-oriented focus. I try and approach materials in an exploratory and intimate fashion. I am interested in reaching limits where matter is forced to work in ways it is not meant to. Conceptually, I am attracted to organic materials that vary, decay and even disappear with time.
