The idea behind my work is to construct a fiction: a hand that behaves like a creature that builds its shell, a small architect that needs glue to grow strip by strip. I have relied on books to nurture this idea; for me the most inspiring one in many ways has been On Growth and Form by D’Aray Wenworth Thompson (1917), which says, for example, that the origin of the spiral in the shell begins in a perfect rectangular formation - imagine, something like my cloth strips - and the form evolves through the pushing of muscles that press against the tissue. At the same time, this growth develops vertically and length-wise, and the pull of gravity and increments of volume and weight also impact the piece.
My intention is to create the widest possible collection of different spiral developments.

When I finished my degree in Philology, I startedmy artistic education in workshops from prestigious artists, national and international. My initialworks were pictoric but they were progressingtowards a sort of painting sculpture which I madewith nylon, very appropriate to make paintings orobjects that would have transparency and movement as main features.
Later, canvas was the material chosen to makemy sculptures because of its ubiquity as pictoricsupport and its accessibility. Moreover, its organic, elastic, flexible and translucent features wereappropriate to make my organic forms.It is during the creation process where I find theinspiration: the use of canvas to deconstruct it, cutin strips and then go back to built in three dimensional objects, it was initially a lucky find while Iwas making my sculpture paintings made by stripsof nylon.
