"I want my work to be a ground for experimental, formalist abstraction, and I also analyse the illustrative and self-reflective qualities of an image. It results from myriad sources: psychoanalysis, linguistics, magical feminism, the mundane and art history.

The enunciation becomes more important than the cold data. I direct myself with the idea of an affect, operating beyond (or before) language, outside the process of signification. I create a temperamental narrator, using it as another medium that leaves traces. My paintings depict spaces that embrace their own logic, which is based on control, transformation, blur and error.

I keep the process of painting open, trying out different voices and approaches that incorporate plural meaning into my work. I emphasise examining the intellectual structure of an artwork; subjectivism, objectivism and the position of an author; drawing my attention to the subject of philosophy, within which I want to explore the human experience."
