Pollution/2018/Mixed media on plastic/ 145 x 95 cm
I find it suggestive and daring to work with fire on polyethylene, repeating my feather patterns I make a work that will be inextinguishable. Interesting to observe and reflect on the themes of environmental care.
I work this work with various techniques, etching on linen, abstraction of leaves of agrimony (medicinal plant) and as a repetitive and sequential act I print on each of them a stamp of Mount Fuji, which sometimes is perceived and sometimes disappears, giving great movement to the work.
This work reflects part of the work process, speaks of my concern about current environmental issues, and makes an interesting counterpoint between two elements that never meet together, the beauty of the brightness of the metal, the threat on an element as subtle as a pen, allow us to reflect on this repetitive act of rupture.
I decide to burn the feathers, many things happen in the process. In this video I record the act in real time of observation. The color of the burning refers to various organic elements, human interiors and suggestive movements.
Cloning/ 2017/ Paper and silk/ Variable dimensions
The viewer can be positioned from different angles to observe it. The austerity of its materiality invites contemplation. This "hanging sculpture" is an autonomous entity, it has life, strength, body. It almost breathes. I am interested in the repetition of elements, inspired by the seriality used as an operative means. The concept of full and empty, positive-negative, and the complementary opposition.
Entomological I & II/2020/ Paper, silk and entomological pins/ 50x50 cm
Through the use of entomological pins, I question my reflection on what is a replica, why do I imitate nature, will the replica be able to replace nature as we know it when we have extinguished it, will it be possible that one of my bitten leaves made of paper, silk and fire intervention will be the ones that in the future will be taken by pins and exhibited in a natural history museum, will be the ones that in the future will be taken by pins and exhibited in a natural history museum?
Corals/2020/Paper and silk on linen/ 158x120 cm
This work is related to nature, its patterns and rhythms, on which I base my compositions. Repetitive sequences, combining simple and small elements, and enjoying the rhythm of repetition. Silk and paper have the softness and looseness I need to make this meticulous and methodical work.
Recollection/2021/Paper and silk/ 40x50x35 cm
This work is formed by 4 sculptures where I exhibit the negative of the material with which I have been working for more than 10 years, time in which I have treasured and enjoyed its beauty. I frame these collections in black iron, with the idea of making a counterpoint with the whiteness and softness of silk and paper.
Karensansui/2021/ Paper and silk/ 100 cm diameter
This work, as its name suggests, refers to the Western Zen gardens. They use rocks and sand to express nature and the universe, simulating images of mountains and rivers. In this work, made with silk feathers and paper, we remember the drawings that are produced in the raked sand, representative of the ocean. Interesting duality between the memory of sand and feathers. Earth and sky... The white sand symbolizes purity in these garden-scenes, which are not for strolling but for contemplation, just like this work.
