    "Mirror of Soul"

    The face, the eyes are considered the "mirror of the soul". The triangle formed by the eyes, nose and mouth sets the range of expressions that we recognize and associate with certain moods and expressions of our inner world. But this deduction is reliable?
    facelift with stretches and retouching, makeup with creams and paintings, Eyelash tips, session of hairdresser... All this comes to build an image that is not the original. Under this effort underlines the lack of conformity with the existing and the identification with a different image that you want to adopt many times under the influence of the changing rules of fashion. New mask also serves as protection against direct access to the "mirror of the soul" which only reserves for intimacy with the more near.
    key diversity in the complex network of relationships established in multicultural societies affects the definition of the identity. The set of rules, symbols, rituals and aesthetics that define our belonging to a group can be inclusive and exclusive at the same time. To the rigidity of the institutionalised models of society is prepended fluidity, diversity and imagination of its citizens.
    this series of portraits of individual and collective wants to help fix our gaze on the "mirror of the soul". We can capture some own trait in the image of the other, see how we are and reflect on how it should evolve. Getting to know better can take steps towards a new more tolerant attitude about ourselves and others, with the diversity of identities posed by societies contemporary.
    his career started in 1972, the year in which took part in a group exhibition at the circle of fine arts in Madrid. Can be highlighted among other signs your participation in the exhibition of "Contemporary Spanish art" at the Metropolitan Museum of Tokyo in 1998 and their participation in the fair international Artexpo in New York, in 2001.
    is represented since 1993 by the CATHARSIS Gallery of Madrid where has exhibited her work repeatedly participating in exhibitions (19931995, 1998) and carrying out exhibitions in 1993, 1999 and 2009.
