Producing works about the relationships between gender identities through the use of sewing, video, drawings and sound; the artist believes that work is a relationship involving waste, contradictions and relations. In her works she pursues signs, stories, words and dreams that motivate her and that she finds harmonious, to create new narratives out of them. So in starting a new work, she studies the notes and drawings in her old notebooks, and the fabrics and photographs she collects. The artist’s work is shaped by the social conditions in which she lives, the images she encounters, her personal history and the materials she finds. The artist, looking for means of expression beyond the act of painting, uses pieces of fabric she collects to this end. Instead of heavy, unwieldly and expensive materials, she prefers to use economical, casual, easy-to-carry and unfettering tools in her artistic practice.
