About

Artist / Designer / Photographer – Self-taught
* Born in Chile, 1952
* Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil, since 1976

For years, the biggest part of my artistic production has included several objects, collages, and photographs whose inspiration comes from the metaphorical images our sleep provides us. During that cloudy lapse, between drifting off and dreaming, I have a glimpse of the ideas and models I will work on. Semi-consciousness and dreams define the paths so that the artistic intuitions can do the rest.

This mysterious, peaceful, and a bit unreal feeling has inspired my creations since my first steps into collage. Several projects started to arise so naturally that I have become a self-taught artist. I have been traveling through photography, design, and sculpture in a confident and bold way.

I feel optimistic about the path I have chosen and I do not think I should follow predetermined artistic movements. During the creation process, I join ideas, products, thoughts, and feelings, sustained in the emptiness of the Tao, source and driving force behind everything that exists. However, characteristics of minimalism and monitored imperfection, centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection of Wabi Sabi, come about spontaneously when I am creating my pieces.
