ABOUT

My artistic production refers to my direct contact with the environments that I visit and also to the subtle levels of human experience and to what is perceived by inner senses. It reflects my interest in human practices which include extrasensory perception in its modus operandi and my deep immersion and research in the field of therapeutic procedures validated by quantum physics, through which it is possible to access and re-signify psycho-emotional content. I create realities mixing concrete and spectral elements, and I work with a family of drawings that present themselves through the spontaneous action of the hand.

SOBRE

Minha produção artística refere-se tanto a minhas experiências de contato presencial com os ambientes quanto a níveis sutis da experiência humana e àquilo que é percebido pelos sentidos internos. O trabalho reflete meu interesse por práticas humanas que incluem a percepção extra-sensorial em seu modus operandi e minha profunda imersão e pesquisa no campo dos procedimentos terapêuticos embasados pela física quântica, através dos quais é possível acessar conteúdos psico-emocionais registrados no inconsciente a fim de ressignificá-los. Trabalho com imagens referentes à realidade concreta e com uma iconografia que “emerge de uma dimensão interior", fazendo-se presentes através da ação espontânea da mão.
