I think, cut, join, disarm and fragment. I rearm, compose, and create.
I make collages in which I build life stories. I elaborate my own and others, I work from found images that I place on paper to tell small stories with deep meanings.
Many of these stories are about split women, fragmented, marked by culture and language. They oscillate between happiness and sadness, innocence and adulthood, pain and joy, health and illness, light and darkness. All these facets can be within the same person. The girl is not the same when she is an adult, when she is a mother or when she grows old, but they all live together in the same body.
I tell stories between divided hearts, I make tributes in card games as in the story "Alice in Wonderland". The universe is leafy, as well as my imagination.
I was born an autumn in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I trained as a graphic designer at the University of Buenos Aires and developed the collage technique in a self-taught way until 2015 when I started taking classes.
I was selected by the magazine Oltre Collage Nº1 "Human Paradox" to publish my work tribute to Sigmund Freud and the magazine Rapsodia No. 17 "Reflections: Between Mimesis and Memory", with the collage "Life".
I exhibited works in “Elsi del río arte contemporáneo”, “Espacio Cabrera”, “Umbral – Espacio de arte”, “La esperanza de los Azurra”, “La casa del árbol”, among others.
In 2016 I was part of the "Fiambre fabuloso", an exquisite collage corpse organized by El Salto de la Mendieta (Barcelona).
