Descrizione Opera / Biografia


Born in Barcelona (1960).Graduated in fine arts by the faculty of San Carlos (UPV).Multidisciplinary artist who travels between the different artistic disciplines avoiding aesthetic pigeonholing, she seeks motivation in various artistic facets that range from installation to performance, through engraving, collage or artist’s book. One of the lines of his work revolves around the graphic work and the artist’s book. She focuses her artistic work on the hybridization of techniques based on experimentation, in which the evolution of the process is as important as the final result. The intervention with different textures or everyday elements that transcend the meaning of them. One of the constants that appear in his works of any kind, is the decontextualization of objects, mixtures, the intervention of chance as leitmotive, in order to find another meaning, giving free rein to the interpretation of the observer.Main artworks:-”Interrogantes”: Artist book edited in 2015.
