Statement: I use the landscape as a starting point and source of inspiration for my work, where I delve into the transitory nature of human beings, observing the transformations of culture and nature in the place I inhabit: the mouth of a river.

From moving through the territory, the contact with the material emerges: the mud, the wood, and their mutation through the elements water, air, and fire. My mother tongue is photography, and it is from there that I explore and experiment with languages such as video, installation, and painting.

Ancestry and geography are deeply rooted in my work, appearing as traces of the past in photographic archives, found objects, and oral memory.
