Collecting is an unstoppable process, without beginning and without end. In collecting, the value of an object is inexhaustible, full of existing and added values created by us. From the physical value of an object or image, to the emotional connection that is created by rethinking their value in our lives. Collecting is one way to stop time. In a collection of jewelry objects and images united by black, white and silver, as well as metal and mirror surfaces, I create a space dominated by aesthetic I have identified through colors, textures and objects. A person inevitably identifies with their collection. As an object or image in a collection acquires more value, the elements of the collection transcend the narrative of the object as a physical object and the image as an ordinary spectacle and become part of me, my aesthetic.
