 ARTIST'S STATEMENT
     

  I start with ideas, concerns and interests. I write about my ideas and about what I am living and feeling. I look to concepts of times, spaces; pasts, presents and futures. I analyze situations, interests, concerns, necessities etc. I begin to develop an idea according to these references, choosing the most appropriate material for the creation of each piece, and for the location of it's installation.

  I enjoy the research and development of ideas created in team. I have carried out numerous public artworks. Each time I gather information about the following themes: times and spaces, pasts, presents and futures. I analyze the situation, questions, and requirements of the project and then start developing an idea that encompasses all of these factors. I have a wealth of experience in developing my own ideas and proposals, keeping in mind the respect that the residents of each different location have for their public spaces and also the many different variables that must be considered in the undertaking of each new project.
