About the work
This work is about a day of planetary alignment. I was very connected with this special moment – feeling the planets, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Sun’s influence on us. In my culture we are in constant communication with the stars, the planets, the Moon, and the Sun, they are in our life as in a dialogue.
About the artist:

In order to explain my practice, it´s necessary to talk about alchemy and an experimental approach to drawing in three dimensionality – using architecture, installation and other formats. An ensemble which I pin to the wall, reminiscent of practices used in a Natural History Museum, an accumulation of drawings pinned like insects in an organic or geometrical form, each time makes a new improvisation that appears to look like a chaotic story board. My perception of space and dimensions have changed in the last few years, and I have begun to work in large format using cotton paper. I am now putting together a lot of different symbols, typography, and patterns, all of which mean something to me, like poetry, and takes me into another space where I identify better.
