STATEMENT

Her style involves illusory aspects of the natural world. She photographs with a documentary approach in which she primarly tracks color, through the themes of the street, landscape or experiment. She takes in what reality offers us; reality that already has a large part of fiction in itself. This duality finds its point of resonance in her paintings on photograph, which connect two techniques that she also works independently. Inspired by topics such as the aquatic universe and natural phenomena, her subjects reveal the vision of mystery and dream that she has of the world.
Combining the gesture of representation with a printed photograph allows her to play on the perception that we have of the world and of images. She seizes the feeling of the elusive at the moment of taking the picture and tries to translate it through imagination.
