ARTIST STATEMENT

My work observes how the processes of enculturation in actual times, are highly influential in the construction of our sense of identity in matter as well as in spirit. I inquire into the way these processes can affect the awareness of ourselves as transcendent beings.

Important sources to me, are found in the review of the way ancient cultures understand universal interconnection, readings on compared mythology, syncretism, and cultural hybridization.

These are crucial conceptual tools for me to create a visual system, by choosing and articulating visual fragments, signs and symbols, crossing over times and cultures, to portray the paradoxical yet complex coordinates that the human spirit faces when meeting with the forces of a culture that could mislead or clear its path toward self-awareness.
