I work with miniature landscapes in different formats or containers, where I place small figures who tell a story or situation in these landscapes. I work with natural and artificial materials. My work begins with the gather, with the search of material, and those are the materials that are suggesting different landscapes, where I place plastic figures that will give the scale and “the text” to the content landscape. The miniature landscapes are a re-reading of our relationship with nature and the landscape.
