Using chaos theory as reference, my works examine the complexity of visual systems and the relationship between elements in opposition. The opposites couple, losing their distinction in a space where unpredictable changes and possibilities can occur—the in-between. The juxtaposition of layers, extension of surface, pictorial space, gap, support, transparency, and reflection of materials allow me to approach painting as a discursive practice that opens questions about its own possibilities.
