ABOUT ME

FORM-AND-surface

Sheridan College, 2013

I came from Mexico City to study in Canada. I have been always surrounded by an ancient ceramic tradition. I often look at my work through the framework of colonialism as an attempt to understand myself and our contemporary society. I am exploring the myths and beliefs that make possible the integration of external ideas and technology. I am excited about the results and transcendence of these cultural exchanges between contemporary countries and how to communicate it.

My aim is to help heal the wounds from the past and produce personal and social awareness. I do this by exploring connections between symbols and historical events stored in the collective memory. My understanding of the creative process makes me explore utility, artistic expression and multiple ceramic techniques in the objects I make. I share my cultural heritage through references to traditional Mexican patterns, techniques, materials and colours.
