As an artist, my vision is to create thoughtful art projects that include the local community. I am powerfully moved by art’s capacity to transform the relationship we have with the urban environment and with ourselves. I create large, site-specific drawings and temporary projects in dialogue with the urban landscape, having a real and direct interaction with the public. My whimsical installations play with existing architecture, creating intricate labyrinths that provide a pathway from the public sphere into a contemplative realm, thus linking two very isolated worlds.
The intricate lines and repetitive patterns of my labyrinth-like drawings cohabitate and collaborate with surrounding architecture, enhancing the beauty of the existing environment. I continually draw inspiration from all the different places I have experienced--from the labyrinthine chaos of Mexico City to Spain and San Francisco's rapidly transforming psyche.
Art is the spiritual manifestation of the subconscious mind, therefore I’m interested in daily rituals we practice amongst ourselves to create cities that teem with life. Using everyday materials to interweave the public and private space, I recycle household objects such as shoes, clothes, shirts and carpet into paths--both physical and metaphorical--and mingle the rich stories of a city’s inhabitants.
I present my work as a playful game and examination of the world that has led me to the discovery of urban street culture and the interconnectedness of human beings.
