Descripción del Artista
Reality is overrated and fantasy underestimated, in my opinion the richest thing that exists in life is fabulation and the power to imagine. That is why my photography is loaded with performative and cinematographic gestures, at the same time allusive to the pictorial archive and the documentary. Consequently, my work has become an exercise in sinister freedom carried to its strangest consequences, which has a strong relationship with chance and instinct trying to use all the narrative tools to create some emotion within the imperfection. It is an affront to terror and dehumanization because I believe that human passion is in itself an act of defiance. I enjoy playing to fail and live, mixing different techniques (archive images, pictorial intervention, makeup, collage, analog and digital photography …). The texts that accompany my work inspired them based on crude instants of extreme detachment. Between madness and complete clarity (flash-backs). I capture the ... encounter and the search of my demons and of others as exits to freedom. I continue a transgressive aesthetic search between the strange and the everyday, the constructed and the fortuitous, being subtle and magical at the same time. My projects discuss the rudeness, subtlety, complexity and emotion of living outside the structures, thus illustrating my existential, mystical and psychic journey. In my most recent projects I open my practice to reflect on how perverse, and unnecessary are the social structures (family), telling them how I have experienced them; an inbreeding curse in the context of Mexican sorcery. In my most recent experiment I investigate the consequences of the execution of female violence by intermingling my mental and real travels as a declaration of honesty until the rupture with myself.
