Page 1 | 2 | 3 | Biography




I am a multidisciplinary artist working with painting, sculpture and installation. Different media in my creative work are often integrated to make cohesive installations. My three-dimensional and two-dimensional work compliment and complete each other. I create a variety of forms inspired by the complexity and playfulness of labyrinths. Knots, tangles, woven shapes and patterns of hair feature prominently in my work.





I am interested in exploring the tension between order and chaos. I combine unexpected materials and colors to change the appearance of real objects. I often work with contradictory ideas, shaping natural forms from artificial materials. Sometimes, I apply the order of a formal plaid pattern to a chaotic form. In other projects I work with objects from daily life, like old shoes or beauty masks, and present them transformed with unnatural colors and in new context.
My work has been fed by the different spaces where I lived - from the labyrinthine chaos of Mexico City, to Spain's rapidly transforming culture. In California I've been inspired by the proximity of nature to the city. Both the urban street culture and the natural world have offered me materials and forms that entered into my work. I present my work both as a game and an examination of the world in a playful way.
