The Andalusian artist's most recent work is based on a figurative concept presented in a abstract way and vice versa, using pictorial and graphic techniques to create her own signs language in an investigation process which lead us to the disappearance of the limits on these two artistic disciplines, sometimes as part of the installation, in a language struggled between the narrow powerful lines between figuration and abstraction.

From real to imaginary geography, the work shows lands which only exist in her mind, but could be a real fact in a parallel universe, a kind of Middle Earth which pushes the limits of the explorers golden age. When it's a about size, there's no average: it wanders from micro images to macro-canvas, where she paints abstract landscapes with oil, charcoal and Chine ink; also in methacrylate and plexiglass plates, traced with corrosive materials and incisions through the drawing.

The artist runs away from architectural interpretation and goes after the outdoors, the call of the wild, where flora is just sketched and fauna is almost invisible in it.

She introduces ourselves into lonely oniric sceneries through a moving zoom along the snowy unachievable mountains peaks. Her pictures in mixed formats launch us into the calcium of the starts, which are sometimes contained inside little light boxes, making us remind the origin we come from. They represent human resistant daring the most inhospitable, extreme life conditions they are living, chosen or not.

In her graphic work, she uses a trial process, resorting to her resources and other external elements to typical discipline, in order to create a personal cartography in movement. Her work gives an opportunity to decode the map of space and time created between both of them.
