My work is a reflection on what the world is today, and how I perceive the different realities through my daily existential experiences. My paintings fictionally reflect on experiences and passages I have had in my life.
I am also concerned on women’s critical issues and their current condition in society. Women are always concerned with the predicaments of beauty, sex, and fashion. Beauty and fashion elevates the status and power that women hold in society, usually creating highly tense situations and competitive attitudes.
I am concerned with how women react to these social demands. I like to use extreme feminine characters in crucial situations, sometimes treated with humor or sarcasm. I create parodies and burlesque scenes, exaggerating feminine traits or women reactions to society.
My most recent series of paintings, such as the LIPSTICK and the WISHFUL THINKING profile iconic characters as products of this society – they are products of consumerism, fixed stereotypes that occupy our social mentalities. Rock stars, models, women on a shopping spree or in a family fury, the gallerist, and the teddy bear become comical figurations that I treat with irony, but also with cuteness and amusement. My characters are presented with hilarious traits and caricature-like expressions as a way of satirizing the world that we live in today.
