ARTIST STATEMENT:
“CUERPO DIÁFANO”
La obra quiere expresar la importancia que tiene la forma de relacionarnos entre los humanos, resaltando la opción afectiva, la disposición y entrega plena, transparente, diáfana. Si bien el acto de relacionarnos es natural, la disposición generosa, el abrir la mente al prójimo, es un estado sublime de las personas. La obra nos invita a recorrer sus formas y a entrar por el espacio que se abre y nos muestra lo que hay del otro lado, a encontrarnos con los demás, también a intentar experimentar sensaciones nuevas, que se producen por medio de estos volúmenes que se expresan en un continuo armonioso y lúdico movimiento.

“Diaphaneous  (Transparent) Body”
This piece wants to express the importance of the relationship between the form itself and the way we relate among human beings, highlighting the emotional connection in a simple transparent and diaphanous (clear) way. While the act of interaction is natural, the generous layout, open the mind of others to a sublime state.
This piece invite us to  explore it forms and to enter the space that show us what we can find on the other side as we encounter others, also attempts to experiment with new sensations that occur through the size and volume of the piece it self expressed in a harmonious, fluid, and playful movement.
