  • Letter to my Father 85 cms x 125 cmsPaper2006My writings with paper pulp emerged from the desire to connect my present experience as an immigrant with my past. I use the power of writing both to express emotions and feelings as well as it’s ability to generate a plurality of meanings and associations of ideas. Due to the peculiarities of this writing technique, my texts become "entangled" and cannot be read fully. The illegibility of the text allows me to work with intimate personal memories.

  • Blue Letter 160 cms x 125 cmsPaper2006I wrote the “Blue Letter” to my sister Gloria who got struck by a small aircraft coming literally out of the blue somewhere in Colombia. She died instantly at the age 33. In this letter I tell her about all the things I would have liked to tell her in person throughout all these years. I used cotton and pigments to pour out my feelings to someone that I will always cherish and never forget.
