About my artwork
My work develops within sculpture, installation, video and drawing. Departing from the law of conservation of energy that states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed, my work’s aim is to understand the relation between energy and its consequence –the process amid action and reaction- and how can ideas transform an object’s shape or meaning to create a whole different thing or situation.
