Artist’s Statement

I use my artwork as a vehicle for exploration, as a tool to encompass art and life, and as a mirror where unexpected connections and relationships arise. In my work, I seek beauty, wonder, and connection.

My artistic development has involved a variety of subjects and media, at first emphasizing drawing and painting and currently working in installation, video, and interdisciplinary approaches. I have dealt extensively with my own identity and have explored the relationship between my life experiences and the wider context of historical and cultural conditions. In a broad sense, I strive to find a balance between poetic and intellectual inquiry. As an on-going project, I am exploring the history of women and my own experience as a woman within my Spanish Catholic heritage.

Over the course of the years I have developed site-specific pieces as a result of an engagement with particular contexts and situations. Working site-specifically allows me to create community and to develop an endearing connection to place. Through multiple media approaches, I attempt to dismantle the concept of ‘vision’ as a privileged site for art appreciation and to expand it into a realm that stimulates all the senses and invites participation.

I use my artwork as a vehicle for exploration, as a tool to encompass art and life, and as a mirror where unexpected connections and relationships arise. As an artist, I attempt to develop a dialogue with my work that goes beyond the boundaries of traditional practices and continues challenging my own convictions. I believe in the potential of installation and interdisciplinary approaches to engage in dialogue, to pose questions, and to challenge its own framework.
