ARTIST STATEMENT

"Ties" is a serie of monotypes on half size sheet paper, wich was created from using ties as counterfoils. I go many years working with objects related to the world of the laundry since this is my daily environment and my point of inspiration. Starting from a familiar and simple object my intention is to generate complex images in construction throw printing technology, the monotype, creating a visual tension and spontaneous . The monotype allows me the freedom of playing with different outlines and caps of visual information this way to achieve my goal.
