ABOUT THE ARTIST
Considering aspects as the intimacy that is established between the fabric and the human being, the omnipresence of the textile in the human existence, its utilitarian and symbolic functions, it becomes a fundamental channel of artistic expression.
Due to the fluidity that characterizes it, the fabric is manipulated by various techniques and processes in order to invest it with different meanings, messages, emotions.
Starting from the premise that the fabric is a common product of nature and human activity, it is used by the artist in the interest of creating shapes that suggest a permanent recourse to nature, which inspired them. The themes that occupy central positions in the creative activity are concentrated around the “Visible/Not visible ” dichotomy, as well as the interest in the interpretation of exotic plants structures, respectively the creation of oversized representations of microorganisms and agents that populate the cellular environment – forms that coexist with us, often in the absence of our awareness.
