ARTIST STATEMENT: From Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but have spent most of my life in NY.
I am a painter and video artist. I am profoundly inspired by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Mary Frank, Henri Matisse, William Kentridge, among many others.
In my work I explore many personal and universal themes. I am very interested in Otherness as a subject- whether otherness is experienced socially, physically, or in the unconscious.
Graduate of the Visual and Critical Studies Dept. at the School of Visual Arts.
