Artist Statement

My work is directed by concepts and ideas such as gender roles, dynamics of power and control and the complexity of the human being. I do this by exploring how objects can help us understand the deeper complexity of people’s experiences. My work expresses in different mediums, it all depends on what the idea needs to be. I am interested in how men see women and women see men. I like to create space to express the full complexity of their humanity and allow them to express it. Likewise, I bring an idea into different substrates such as objects, papers, textiles depending on what it needs. Many of my works show men, as I think it is important to acknowledge their complexity too because only so and in conjunction with works showing women we will make the whole spectrum complete.
