Sculptures that provoke strong feelings to the people. What’s the intention behind this? They transmit the awareness of becoming adults and thus losing their ability to be able to “hear” their unconscious.
“Do you think that any form of art is in its core autobiographical? Which part of your own experiences is reflected in your work?
Absolutely. I have always sought answers through studying and reading to what I remember as the most difficult and mysterious moments of my childhood.

In this way, I like to think that the internal dialogues I had as a child were not in total solitude but were a form of conversation with another world. “
