Statement
In the unconscious of  the Mesoamerican people, survives the ceramic pot,  the broken ceramic bowl and the clay figurine buried under the structures of Western culture. With my brush and palette knife I model each piece as if it were clay,
and I discover it as an archaeologist under the walls of THE epistemology; that one of the Western Culture.

Nowadays, popular culture and the media are the new walls that cover the memories of our ancient cultures and  our opportunities to rethink our identities, that is why I started adding grafitti to my walls.

Declaración de Principios En el inconsciente Mesoamericano, sobrevive la olla de cerámica, la vasija quebrada y la figurilla de arcilla enterradas bajo las estructuras de la actual cultura Occidental que compartimos. Con mi pincel y espátula, modelo cada pieza como si fuera de barro, y descubro como una arqueóloga, bajo los muros de LA epistemología, la de Occidente, los restos de culturas de tremenda sabiduría y diferente manera de entender el Universo.
