I create scenarios with endless imagery and references, where unusual animated constructions of hybrid worlds and separate disciplines coexist. I collect and create objects, images, scientific experiments, paper sculptures, videos, toys and mechanisms that I use to develop new interpretations of my own life and life around me.

The aim of my work is to explore concepts of memory and identity through a ‘playful objecthood making‘ in what i consider to be my science experimentation laboratory. Scientific experimentation is a process that I use to gain greater understanding of the concepts i use through its engagement with materials. My working process is concerned with the ‘wanting’ of an object- a need to recreate the memory of the powerful impact the subjects of the work have had on me. The making of the work allows me to keep something of this powerful experience.

Physically this technique evokes the processes of reflection, memory, loss and the yearning for another time as the connotations of conscious thought disperse, giving way to unconscious states of familiarity and recognition.

Concepts of ‘home’ ’childhood’ and ’space’ are interrogated, sometimes in a melancholic way, as a sense of loss but also to explore the space paradoxically. This fact might give a false sense of security, where there is always something more disturbing in a subversion of the mundane. The child, childhood, is inside us and outside us, it is a point of reference of our own, close and direct; present both in the real sphere and in the symbolic sphere. I explore taboos and fantasies, which are presented as children’s games, revealing how most fetishist behaviours spring from childhood impressions. Play, making and learning are fluidly integrated in contemporary visual art like in many other cultural creative fields.

Something unquantifiable about the forms I look at and make moves and captivates me. Objects and their contexts are explored and manipulated to create what appears to be ambiguous works seemingly caught in a ‘domestic third space’ transforming empty white cubes into fantastical narrative generating a dialogue between psychological and physical space.

My own nature, as a Spanish artist living in Ireland, accentuates all these concepts. I am close to be obsessed with placing my self in locations, cultures and landscapes previously unknown to me. I live struggling with language and cultural barriers, purposefully removed and often -almost- isolated.
