Ophelia in the crystalline stream (2008)
Vision of art
My creations are symbolic or gestural elements out of a relation with my environment: surrounded by nature, space where the metaphors that dress me up appear, standing up, in front of those buildings that cover the earth and the sky, ornate with my little fragile constructions. I hold plastic branches or cloth flowers, which remind me of the real ones, those so far away, the ones worshiped in this ritual. Just like Little Ophelia, crowned with herbs, who down the river opens her hands in a offering gesture an lets her vegetal trophies go ‘ floating like a mermaid, (…)or like a same element natural creature’, coming in water like in life. Lost reason, struggle between real and ideal… go crazy as it has: Make sorrow beautiful.
