I’m a Chilean artist living in Santiago, just next to the Andes Mountain Range. I paint landscapes and subjective maps in watercolour and create zines and artist books.
My work is the trace of the habits and rituals I build in order to define my reality and it focuses on the perception I have of the place that surrounds me and the one inside me.
I create artworks that are mostly small, even miniature. Mainly in series. These are the witnesses of the actions I obsessively repeat to integrate that which intrigues me. This is also a reminder to myself (and you) that beauty resides in the tiny details of life that, sometimes, we take for granted.
My education is in architecture and I’m deeply curious about the subjective dimension of human dwelling. That’s why you might relate my work to concepts such as Urban Imaginaries, Psychogeography and Walking. For the last eight years my life used to be quite nomadic, that’s why questions like how I am connected with a territory, how it influences me and how I adapt when moving, are the fuel for my art, especially now that I’m back to my home land.
