From the principles of assemblage, intervened appropriation and
abstract construction, the artist creates objects that appeal to the
careful reading of their own processes, surprise and intrinsic nature.
Isolated or conceived for dialogues in the space, they have the presence
and the tactile appeal of sculpture, but also the resourcefulness of
drawing and the intriguing challenge of their latent symbolic reference.
