What piqued your interest in arts, and when did you know this was the life path for you?
They say I’ve always had a lot of imagination, creativity and observation skills. I imagine it comes from my family, with whom I was lucky enough to visit museums and mountains, soaking up images and art from an early age. I realized that I wanted to try my way in art in an exhibition in Madrid. There, I saw a painting by a Spanish-American artist with whom I shared style, drawings and obsessions. She and a friend encouraged me to give it a try…. and here we are!
Could you tell us about the process of creation? How long does it take to move from an idea to a realization?
My creative process in plastic art is more automatic than thought out. I try to explain to myself what I draw months after I have finished them. Regarding the videos, everything comes from a main idea. Then with a very basic script I see the limits of the project and how far I can develop it taking into account my technical capabilities.
What are you trying to communicate with your art?
At this moment – being in my youth – I’m interested in social and critical art, nature and the deepening of the human condition.
You mostly choose video as a medium? Any other medium you would like to experiment with?
I would love to create a novel or a script for a film, some music and make a two-meter mural with the drawings I did with a pen.
To what extent does the pandemic influence your depiction of art? Does it generate new inspiration?
Not too much, I guess. Locking myself at home to create is something innate in me, I didn’t need confinement to have that excuse.
How do you feel about being involved in an online residency program? How important is it to stay connected with the international art community?
I am delighted. Seeing the high level of the artists in residence and everything I’m learning, I’m very motivated and excited. Especially for the confidence I have gained in my work, just by sharing space with people with so much level and experience. From every meeting I get some idea or influence from them and from Baxx, which in a second gives you that idea you were looking for…. they inspire me a lot!
What are your thoughts about the theme ‘artist on standby’? Tell us a bit more about your project…
What do you want to achieve before things return to normal if it is to happen? Any future plans/projects?
My idea is to work in film for a few years and then get back on the road. Right now I’m on standby, but I’ve always traveled a lot and I think it’s necessary to soak up experiences and images. It’s been more than a year since my last trip and I already feel the call of the road, the fresh air…
