ARTIST STATEMENT

One usually imagines the process of burning as dark and ashy, or as a violent, scary fire, which alters, darkens, and destroys. My intention, though, is to use the flame as a ‘tool’ that slightly curls and melts fabric, so that the burned areas look delicate, fragile, light, and fresh. By altering the fabric’s appearance, I aim not to imitate a recognizable subject, nor to reshape the natural world for expressive purposes. On the contrary, my goal is to create pictures of the stratification processes of memories and dreams as a result of the passage of time and transformation. Therefore, I preponderantly use transparent fabric, for it has the function of dissolving real scenes, and making them reappear again. This allows me not only to ‘sculpt’ the invisible senses, but also to picture dimensions and sequences of time or to ‘carve’ the senses of our minds.
