I play with my figures as children play with toys”
My experience as a teacher in my hometown Bogotá, the capital city of Colombia moved me to create a series of marionettes and puppets based on my students lives that metaphorically talked about control, manipulation and power. With time, these marionettes and puppets helped me to touch diverse aspects about our human condition. Lately, I have felt more committed to respond to the social and political situation of my home country, Colombia, which is also a reflection of what happens in a global outlook. So my ceramic figures extended their previous morphological features and from puppets, they branched out into different kind of toys.
