The exhibition examines the concept of “Alterity” ( usually understood as the entity in contrast to which an identity is constructed. It means the ability to distinguish between self and non-self, and consequently to assume the existence of an alternative viewpoint)
As a whole, the works form a prototype of a conceptualized identity. They present a pulsation between the self, the other and the external factors that are used to construct a sense of individuality.
My work is formed by the synthesis of a variety of dualities such as the representative and the suggestive, reality and fiction. The paintings on display collapse these antagonistic dichotomies that dialogue with each other in order to create alternative conceptual spaces.
