ABOUT MY WORK

The work appears in the studies or somewhat of an investigation on materials and the reaction between them. The studies are not based on science nor reason, but on intuition driven purely by curiosity and the desire of stumbling into something unfamiliar. The form I work with is the possibility and playing with perspectives; a visual illusion.
