    About the artist

    Lives and works in Mexico D.F
    1967: Was born in Mexico D.F.

    My Artwork develops around the analysis of the relationship between the individual and nature, emphasizing on how the emotional ties between the subject and the outside world are generated. My work covers some aspects of the modern myths of civilization versus the wild, such as domestication, landscape as aesthetic value and the controversial position of human as part of nature.


     At the beginning of  my career I created sculptural installations and photography which documented the short distance that sometimes exists between what is natural and what is artificial.

    Over the years my work has focused more on vegetation. For over ten years I have been researching the different variables affecting our relationship with the outside territory, the landscape and, more specifically, the garden as a domestic platform for nature. I am currently developing vegetation interventions in public and private spaces, where the viewer finds a space to analyze and question the differences between the human dimension and the vegetation world. Each project is developed around specific aspects in which our existence is radically different: Dimension (Scale Forest, 2006), time and stillness (Contemplating the Invasion, 2004), or how plants spread (Pink Mina, 2005 and Malas madres, 2008).
