Artist Statement Submitted 2019

Articulating an image from fragments of other images that belong to different times and places in codependency with my own drawings, is what I do in these works. The artisan character gives a deep meaning to the whole process, a certain conversation takes place when selecting the pieces taking part. The experience is very revealing, you can access certain nonlinear and generative logic. I attempt to create images that talk about the extreme fragility of culture, civilization, as well as my own vulnerability. It is like creating a syntax. The space in which everything happens is ludic. The past and the future are converging in the act of making.
