Formas on canvas Series

The process of creating a painting leaves behind a series of elements that become the starting point for a new piece. A mark, a line, color and shape become elements of a new painting as well as subject matter. Making the viewer aware of both time and process in painting. t’s a series that is self-referential while at the same time keeping in mind the history of abstract art.

Formas on paper Series

This series is born from a search to leave aside the narrative figurative and reduce the image to shape and colour. Starts with both images found as well as her own images, previous pieces, from her palette, from drawings, in a self-referential way.
