I have been experimenting with materials that allow my photographs to be sensorial and playful, pushing the boundaries of photography as a flat surface. I am using acrylic paint, paper, tape and pencil over photo prints. As the same time, my work explores the physical aspects of photography, I continue to use images from my personal photo archive to elaborate on the idea of displacement and identity. I use the instability of the immigration condition as a main source of inspiration. Bringing improvisation and unexpected factors into my art practice. The experimental quality on my work is becoming stronger as I continue to deconstruct photographs. I am embracing multiple possibilities that exist in the photographic spectrum.
