She claims "manual power" in the face of technology. A constant in her work is the reflection on the ephemeral and the absurdity of our society, also the human being, as a devastating, indifferent and ethically dual element. For this purpose, she uses the female figure as a metaphorical archetype of the "universal individual" and as an atavistic representation of the creative and destructive force, composing her mestizo mythologies. All of it wrapped up and disguised as a pop and colorful aesthetic, apparently superficial and sometimes ironic, in order to contrast "form and essence" trying to awaken awareness.
