I use art’s critical power to counteract and intervene in opposition to the cruelty of
Imperial dominance. I construct alternative realms of resistance, where utopia
has not quite been reached. I wish for the work of art to create a situation in
which the viewer will reflect or mirror her or himself in what is unveiled through
the work by scooping out our essence, to find a reflection of our consciousness
and have a conversation with it. I work with ludisme to approach serious
subjects, creating a socially aware dialogue seeking the return to instinctive
morality and the ultimate liberation from oppression. I am interested in the
creation of alternatives to barbarism for true human fulfillment, independent from
alienation and the degradation of the individual.
We live in a state of barbarism and self -estrangement, consequence of carefully
crafted unintelligible dogmas. Morality is present in an instinctive manner in all
animals, humans and non-humans alike. Institutions of power, such as the
church and the state, have created their own, based on primitive superstitions,
which has lost all ties, with real morality. Therefore, we live dangerously
alienated from our true animal instinctive moral in the cult of abstract humans,
which I mock by creating a fictitious world. The Theocratic Republic Of Gaia, is a
critique against our contemporary status quo, and a call to break from it. A
mythological world which I created, where weak human beings live as machines
at the mercy of a world fascist empire lead by the White Papess and the
T.R.O.G.’s army, the Beings. The citizens of T.R.O.G, in search of
Tetrapharmakos (the essence of pleasure and happiness) live in a period of
imminent intense geological and social upheaval during which tensions built up
over centuries will be discharged. The citizens of T.R.O.G, hypnotized, have
forgotten what reality is and live at the mercy of unintelligible dogmas. The
resistance and uprising is lead by spirit Insurgent Women, The entities that
populate my work are often purging threads out of their mouths, which allude to a
physical and emotional catharsis that expresses what is ignored and repressed,
what we are forced to hide, a mute scream. I explore through my imagery,
among other things, the anti-patriarchal struggle and issues on Neo-Colonialism.
The Insurgent Women are akin to the medieval heretics, which fought for land
against the monarchic theocracy and landlords in the feudal setting.
I have always felt without sense of place. A foreigner everywhere I have lived,
always an outsider. My only constant is the world I have created. A world inside
the world. I am in the ultimate quest for liberation, searching for my anodyne.
