The physical nature of light and the transformation of matter are the main concerns of her work. More specifically, how they interact and how they metaphorically relate to the artist’s interaction with the space and the material. At the same time, they point to the invisible scale in which the interaction between energy and matter occurs, inevitably influencing our perception and the way we shape reality. In this sense, she seeks to translate the world hidden to the human eye, approaching the factual information in an imaginative manner. Her work attempts to formulate a tangible vocabulary, in an attempt to generate further understanding of light, life and the universe. Her work also questions time, primarily through the physical absence of things or, in other words, through the powerful presence of the invisible.
