my work is inspired by the human figure and finding ways to create an object visually ambiguous, offering different lectures between the figurative and the abstract, going back and forth, open to the potential of a fluid perception. My Initial interest in the representation of the folding of fabric designs over the body led me to create poses of the human figure with stripes and subtracted spaces. Through my craft the resin cast on the panel creates a relief on the surface interacting with the white background where these “positive” and “negative” spaces can be seen as completing and/ or competing with each other, depending on how the translucent reliefs of resin interact with the light and the viewer’s physical and/or emotional stance.
