Artwork description

In her work, the artist takes us to a dystopian imaginary full of evaporated sensations and diluted colors that make up a dream like perspective w here the protagonists of the works mix with the background. The ambiguity of the figures is framed by the colors of the landscape w here references to specific places are barely existent

Only some objects are objectively represented as collage cutouts that are interspersed with sensations left by memories. In "Apres apres" there are several characteristics that make up the main review of the artist, such as the delimitation of the space of the canvas through parallel lines or the use of neutral colors. It is this superposition of colors that adds layers and textures to the figures represented, giving prominence to the essence of the work itself.
