In her own words:
Curiosity for visual engagement is the driving force in my work… Subconscious, reality, society – with the action of subtraction of layers, the action of painting becomes physical embodiment of my journey; creating and subtracting different layers in the paint within their connected sensation. Communication between the subject and his user, the observer and the observed, intimate, non-verbal, sensorial, is what I try to achieve with this method. When I use gestures in my work, it is an emotional triadic process in which I attempt to develop a relationship, a communication between my subject, the observer and I. I want the subject of my paintings to be real, not only in their physical appearances, but I want them to reflect my personal research into the relationship between the image and the psychological penetration that is due to the expressive medium I am progressively developing in my works. The kind of work I want to develop will be the outcome of a creative process that takes into consideration the connection between the physicality of the painting material/gesture within the psychoanalytical approach onto the thematic of questioning subjectivity in the representation of the portrayed object.
