Art Projects

This part of the website is under construction. You can click the image and read the full description of the project. However, the complete version is not available online at the moment.

My core interest as an artist is to explore themes trough magic realism and pictorialism. More specifically, my curiosity and desire to explore themes such as upbringing, the strength of the mind over memories, the loneliness as self-sufficiency, nostalgia, the construction and deconstruction as a necessary pleasure for creation. I like to combine surrealism with national reality, after an investigatory process. In my artwork I merge aesthetics conceptualizing them with a particular theme between identity and social work. I believe that constructed photography could merge boundaries such as Documentary and Fine Art photography

My work explores the construction and reconstruction of identity.
