Artist Statement

In my works I am interested in the concerns of the constructed environment. In the last ten years, the themes of architecture and spacial habitats have been the main focus of my art practice.  My preoccupations have addressed consistently the formality of the structural genome from what is considered urban and habitable. I have consistently addressed themes concerning the perception of landscape aesthetics versus the experience of habitable spaces. I also like to challenge ideologically the dominate culture and its historical transcendence. In my works, my intent is to point out false identities of my environment and its history that are superficially inconsistent.  I work from negation and opposites to highlight the synthesis of problems that interest me and with which I also identify.
