ARTIST STATEMENT (English / Espanol)

When I am at home near the ocean and see jellyfish on the sand, I reflect on a primordial moment, when life began. Water, ammonia and methane bubbling with heat, light and electricity. This series embodies certain physical qualities that visually and tactilely evoke organic embryonic shapes as well as silicone implants. It is both sexual and asexual, natural and unnatural, alive and inanimate.
