Lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia.

As a creative researcher I am focused on capturing, through photography, geological forms moulded by the unseen forces of water, wind and temperature. In my career I have done several fieldwork projects, which have led to the translation of my experiences into tangible sensations. After my trips I build new structures based on these formations and the photographs of the sites, recreating my experience of the natural environment within the gallery. As a female artist based in a country with an on going political conflict, my approach is to explore the landscape by moving to other locations, seeking safety and sustainable environments. I have been influenced by Minimalism and Land Art and my work diverges from these traditions. I merge the political and the transcendental to position the work in the gallery space. I propose a continuum between nature and the white cube, landscape and its representation.
