Artist Statement

We would be nothing without attributes; without them we would be unrecognizable as individuals. Objects are, beyond their functional characteristics, symbols that express our identity; they differentiate and legitimize us. They are symbols of our existence, status, and power. I am interested in the material universe of houses and the things that surround contemporary men and women. I take everyday objects that, as layers or skin, define tastes, ideologies, classes, and social divisions, or the appearance thereof. I penetrate the private space of the individual who owns and lives with those things so as to start a dialogue with the culture, whether inherited or assimilated, that modulates the identity of the human being in each context.
