My work seeks to explore the relationship between art and therapy. Through the use of different mediums, I create abstract analogue and digital collages driven by the feelings that colour and geometric forms produce in me.

 

Strongly fascinated by Alain de Botton and J. Armstrong’s book Art as Therapy and W. Kandinsky’s Concerning the Spiritual in Art, my artistic research is centred around the therapeutic effects of art. Its power to process and alleviate the struggles of life and everything that I and our society experience. Working with abstract shapes help me immerse myself in this cathartic process and be guided by intuition and unconsciousness.

When I create a collage, I do not have a preconceived idea of the final result. Only at the end, I can visually assess the spectrum of emotions that I have been carrying and dealing with at the time of cutting, sticking and overlapping geometric shapes, whether they are analogue or digital collages. 

 

Ultimately, my abstract compositions become part of a fascinating process in which they transform into useful tools for improving my mental and physical health and with the act of sharing this with my viewers.
