Artist's statement:

 

I like to observe and collect objects that are discarded because they awaken in me creativity and imagination, causing a deep reflection on what community lives there, what it consumes, what it cares for, from the garbage it produces.

 

I offer myself as an instrument for the transformation and reframing of this material that is no longer useful, a channel to relive and tell its story, through my art.

 

That's how I communicate with the world, with my own dialect that I call "Kleberês", my way of talking about the things that disturb or enchant me.

 

I don't really understand the universe of words or numbers, that's why I use my art - language to access a space without time, where I can play whatever I want, without barriers or borders. In this place I feel in the body the light present in everything, in everyone, a dip in nothing. A living inspiration in some part of the universe decides to be born right here, in me. Right now I'm a brush, color, art and artist, all together making room for the idea to take shape. I dance the emotion of those who know nothing, just feel. Focused on the process, I let my body free to tell the images of the ancestral stories that come as breaths in my ears.

 

Here I exist - I belong - I am art.
