My practice is figurative and symbolic.
I have been developing images which represent the wildest side of human nature through drawing and etching. In my process, sketching and printmaking allow me to reconstruct reality by playing with it, creating impossible scenes happening simultaneously. I try to capture the physicality and psychology of the figures by distorting them, using expressive rapid brushstrokes and lines in contrast to fully rendered models.
The topics I depict are based on the body and death, and different social issues, such as gender, sexuality, violence, the disengagement from nature and the increase of human individualism. Psychoanalysis and folk tales are important references in my work. I explore these subjects through my artwork looking for answers to conflicts that I see in my close environment, having been raised in a catholic androcentric country, and therefore this way I analyze inherited patterns of my personality as well.
I am very interested in the theory of archetypes by Carl Jung, that propose the existence of a collective unconscious formed by universal ancient motifs. I make use of these symbols to illustrate the human mindset, even if this reflects our fears, barbarity or those intrinsic features we have to confront.
I studied Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid being granted with a bursary to undertake the course Cátedra Francisco de Goya with Antonio López García. In 2017 I graduated with an MA in Print from the Royal College of Art and won the SWA Fine Art Young Artist Award at Mall Galleries and recently the Gwen May RE Recent Graduate Award from the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. My work has been seen in Spain and most recently in the UK, being selected for the Society of Women Artist Summer Exhibition , the National Original Print Exhibition at Bankside Gallery two following years and as finalist of the Ingram Collection 2017.
