b. Panamá, 1995

Her work focuses on the relationship between natural environments and human-made structures, observing the ongoing violence that exists between them, and seeing it lead to the decline of the inorganic – thus exploring the fragility of what we build. She is interested in exploring urbanism, how we exist within spaces, humidity and memory. She has participated in several group shows Panama City (PAN), Brooklyn (NY), San Francisco (CA), and Princeton (NJ). 

Interested in promoting the work of emerging contemporary artists from Latin America, she is co-founde of Arte Nómada––a contemporary art project that seeks to highlight the work of emerging artists from Panama and across Latin America with temporary exhibitions in abandoned spaces.

 

She worked at PROXYCO Gallery as the assistant to the directors, assisted at La Salita, and was a Public Programs intern at El Museo del Barrio.
