"In addition to the use of natural materials, your art is strictly related to the land and its elements, which gives absolute justification and authenticity to the pieces. What reason do you find for choosing this discourse?
Despite the scientific task involved in my work, there is a magical part that comes from my childhood (...) I maintain a symbolic approach to the environment while also exploring botany and chemistry. However, I always connect with the shapes and narratives of the different elements. For example, by using the yellow of sophora, I establish connections with its flowers, which in turn I relate to the stars. Colours and their materials, fundamentally, have very human attributes and undergo transformation processes similar to ours; There is a lot of spirituality in them. Especially in the making of textiles, where the drawing with the mordant is initially invisible, and the colors of the plants emerge as phytochemical traces or light spectrums".
