    About the artist

    BA in Fine Arts at Universitat de Barcelona UB, (Spain)

    Exchange programme at Accademia di Belle Arti di Ravenna, (Italy)

    --

    I am working representing casual objects and other elements of my close environment, such as objets trouvés, domestic photographs, etc.

    My work consumes forms and re-programmes them precisely in a traditional way, painting.

    My work plays, through painting, with a distinct combination and re-situation of foreign elements, unconnected to each other, and with a figurative language. It creates a certain kind of estrangement produced partly by visual alteration or re-situation.

    Some of my works aim at reflecting upon the process of work itself, and focus particularly on the concepts of work and authorship.
