Artist Statement
My artistic work has drawing as its starting point. The line has always been the structure around which the poetics of my work has developed. On account of this interest I could engage in other activities such as illustrations, graphic works and the production of theoretical and didactic works on drawings. My research got closer to sculptoric issues, abandoning the more traditional concept one has about drawing. I started using other materials and supports such as tissue, plastic, Japonese paper and sewing became a founding constructive procedure for the constitution of the poetics of my work, a procedure that still resounds in my more recent production, even using other materials as paper, carbon, metal sheets, wood sheet or other medias and procedures as bookwork, video and  photograph.Since 1997 I have been producing installations related to the constitution of spatial situations, always using black cotton line as a constructive element. The architectural space begins to become a constituent in the creation of my work, approaching some contemporary researches attaching drawing  to the idea of site-specific and also to sculpture. These works were always followed by production in other supports such as engraving, photograph, small sculptures, objects and books.
