Artist’s Statement
If I were asked to define my work in a single word, I would call it interstitial. The concept of interstitial allows me to metaphorically refer to my passion for looking into the cracks and in-between spaces; places in which -in an almost imperceptible way- we can find examples of the fragility and relativity of what we sense, belief, think, do, say, or appear to be.
