1979, Buenos Aires
I develop my work overlapping layers of information. I usually create translucent surfaces and weaves with which I create different installations in space. My process of working with textiles is very similar to watercolour painting, the colour appears by a combination of accumulation and transparency, it is light sensitive and variable, dynamic. I compose with silhouettes that have no greater content than their own outline and possess a stratified structure that combines multiple intercalated layers, resulting in a diffuse image. It is from this image and matter that I try to translate some concepts that revolve around the nature of what is hard to grasp, the mystical and the mysterious. The elements I use generally come from the textile world, such as tulle, nets and plastics, but I also work on other media such as paper and video.
